Polsat dismisses accusation of holding up digitisation

The Polish national commercial station Polsat has strongly dismissed suggestions that it is holding up Poland’s transition to digital broadcasting, reports Broadband TV News.
The stations owner said that he was unwilling to give up its existing analogue transmission licence, valid until 2014, until a clearer picture of the future digital market emerged.
He is reported as saying “Today we don’t know how much the state will contribute to digitalisation, how many multiplexes there will be, how many HD channels and how many services offered for free”
