TVN (TV Nowa) is a Polish commercial television network. The broadcaster was co-founded by Polish businessmen Mariusz Walter and Jan Wejchert.[2] The network launched on 3 October 1997. TVN belongs to TVN S.A. which in turn is controlled by Scripps Networks Interactive.[3]

TVN is available by satellite, cable television and digital terrestrial television.

History[edit]

In March 1997 TVN obtained permission from The National Council of Radio Broadcasting and Television to broadcast in central and northern parts of Poland. A few months later TVN merged with Telewizja Wisła, which had a license to broadcast in southern Poland.

The channel was launched on 3 October 1997.[4] During the first four years the network was run by its founder Mariusz Walter. In 2001 Piotr Walter became Chief Executive Officer, replacing his father.

In 2004 TVN was available in 86% of Polish households. Since 2004 TVN has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. On 29 April 2004 TVN launched TVN International, an entertainment and news channel for Polish viewers living abroad. In 2005 TVN acquired rights to organise and broadcast Sopot International Song Festival until 2010. In 2006 TVN launched its high definition version, TVN HD, which was first HD programmed broadcast from Poland.

TVN is a supporter of the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) initiative (a consortium of broadcasting and Internet industry companies including SES, OpenTV and Institut für Rundfunktechnik) that is promoting and establishing an open European standard for hybrid set-top boxes for the reception of broadcast TV and broadband multimedia applications with a single user interface, and conducted the first tests of HbbTV services in Poland in March 2012.[5]

On 16 March 2015, TVN announced a sale of a 52.7% controlling stake to the U.S. media firm Scripps Networks Interactive for €584 million, subject to regulatory approval.[6]

On 2 July 2015, Scripps Networks Interactive has closed its acquisition of a majority stake in Polish commercial broadcaster TVN from ITI and Canal+ Group.[7]
