Poland’s TVN launches international channel

Polish commercial broadcaster TVN has launched a new international news and entertainment channel aimed at ex-pat Poles.

ITI-owned TVN already operates the iTVN international channel and said the new service, iTVN Extra, is aimed at Polish families in international territories and is programmed with news, current affairs, entertainment and kids programming.

The content will be sourced from TVN and its production and channel affiliates.

It has secured carriage in the US and launches today on the Dish DTH platform. It will also be carried in Germany on German IPTV service Wilhelm.tel.

Łukasz Frątczak runs the iTVN channel and will also oversee iTVN Extra. He said: “iTVN Extra stands for programming that has never before been aired internationally and I’m convinced iTVN and TVN24 viewers will enjoy our new, carefully selected content offering.”
