Changes in terrestrial television. Viewers may lose access to some channels

In December, Telewizja Polska will introduce a new standard for broadcasting digital terrestrial television. Thanks to this, viewers will have access to the public broadcaster’s channels in better quality. For some, however, the change may mean losing access to some of them.

In mid-December, it will start switching the MUX-3 multiplex to DVB-T2/HEVC. The changes concern the following channels: TVP1, TVP2, TVP Info, TVP Sport, TVP3 and TVP Historia, which will now be broadcast in HD quality. The multiplex switching is to be carried out in stages.

Changing the standard for broadcasting digital terrestrial television. Check when it will cover your voivodeship

The first stage of the trial is scheduled for the night of December 14-15. It will cover voivodeships located in the west of the country, i.e.: West Pomeranian Voivodeship Pomeranian Voivodeship Lubusz Voivodeship Greater Poland Voivodeship Kujawsko-Pomorskie, voivodeship Łódź Voivodeship Lower Silesia, voivodeship Opole Voivodeship and Voivodeship Silesian. Then, a few days later, on the night of December 18-19, the change will also take place in the east of the country in the following voivodeships: Warmian-Masurian, Podlaskie, Masovian, Lublin, Świętokrzyskie, Lesser Poland and Podkarpackie.

What to do to avoid losing access to some channels?

According to the National Media Institute, 266 thousand households in Poland did not adapt their receivers to the new broadcasting standard. This, in turn, may result in loss of access to some channels. To prevent this, you should either replace the decoder with a device that will be adapted to the new method of broadcasting, or purchase a new TV. The first option will, of course, be less expensive, because the prices of decoders in the DVB-T2/HEVC standard range from PLN 100. Let us remind you that until the end of last year it was possible to obtain funding for the purchase of a new TV or decoder. In the case of the former, it was PLN 250, and in the case of the latter, PLN 100.
