After more than 20 years of regular broadcasting, Polish Television lost the right to broadcast the ski jumping World Cup competitions. Starting from the season 2021/2022, Polish fans can watch the competition of the best jumpers on the TVN channel. Many fans did not like this change, to put it mildly.
“TVN is able to destroy everything that is Polish – even jumps”, “TVN destroyed Polish jumps”, “Like ski jumping, it’s only in Eurosport” – wrote Internet users who were clearly not satisfied with the fact that the Discovery Group took over from the current season for broadcasting rights to all World Cup competitions. There are many similar comments on Polish Twitter.
However, there were also fans who were delighted to take over the rights to broadcast jumps by TVN. “I recommend jumping on TVN. It’s also a kind of sport, because the lottery, but at least you imagine a lump in the throat of the president of a certain station”, “You can watch jumps on TVN, statistics on road accidents on TVP. Accidents will be shown for the next month, so I recommend today, calmly watch the jumps, wrote Internet users who were most likely on the other side of the political barricade.
The Polish representatives did very poorly in the first two competitions of the current season of the World Cup. None of the White-Reds is currently in the top “10” general classification of the cycle, led by Germany’s Karl Geiger.
