Since 15 April this year, the range of TVN and Discovery Polska’s programme offer available on the player.pl platform has been extended by 11 European countries. The special TVN International package allows Polish community to access the content of the service legally and directly online in countries such as Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Portugal and Lithuania. Since February 2019, the international player.pl offer has also been available in the UK. In further stages, the OTT broadcaster plans to extend access to the package to other countries, and the service will be constantly developed.
The viewers of the platform in the newly added markets can initially use the TVN International package as a two-week free access, and then purchase it at a promotional price of PLN 50 (regular price is PLN 65). The TVN International package allows you to watch iTVN, iTVN Extra and TVN24 channels. There are film and serial productions, news and journalism as well as TVN programmes available for viewers.
Tomasz Parfienowicz, Director of Commercial and International Distribution Strategy at Discovery Polska, comments that the launch of TVN International in other markets is an important element of development. The more so, as so far the content of TVN and Discovery Polska has not been available in some territories, e.g. in Denmark, Italy or Austria.
For a long time now, the package addressed to Polish viewers abroad has also been offered by the ipla platform, owned by Cyfrowy Polsat. The IPLA POLONIA package, for a price of PLN 45 per month, provides global access to seven TV channels, including Polsat 1 and Polsat News, as well as FashionBox and FightBox.
