Speaking in a wide-ranging interview published by TVP, he added that it would be impractical for financial and capacity reasons to place it as a linear DTT service on MUX 8.
He also said that TVP Sport plans to develop its HbbTV, which “is the future”. To that extent, all its internet transmissions will be made available in a hybrid version of MUX 8.
Szkolnikowski in addition revealed that although TVP has secured a sublicence from Discovery for the 2020 Olympic Games in Toyko on highly beneficial terms, it mostly covers linear transmissions.
Only coverage of the Games shown on TVP1, TVP2 and TVP Sport will be offered simulataneously over the internet.
