The first two competitions of the new season of the World Cup in ski jumping took place last weekend. For the first time in history, the struggles of Polish jumpers were broadcast by TVN. This is due to the fact that back in October, the Discovery Group, which had the rights to jump continuously since 2014, decided not to sub-license them this time to show them on the Polish Television open air.
Journalists and other TVP representatives avoid public statements about broadcasting ski jumping on TVN. Nevertheless, they announce that they will try to produce as much material as possible on this discipline. On Sunday, at At 19:50 on TVP Sport, the magazine “Sports Evening: Trzecia Seria” debuted. based on the “3 series”, so far broadcast on the YouTube platform.
Viewers noticed that the program shows the highlights of the Nizhny Tagil competitions. Therefore, they began to ask questions to which one of the TVP Sport journalists, Sebastian Parfjanowicz, answered in social media.
“We bought the only rights available at the moment, ie news access. This means the right to shorten the professions in news programs” – he wrote.
Thus, it means that TVP can broadcast shortcuts of the most interesting moments from given competitions, because it has an appropriate license to do so. The journalist also recalled that the competitions organized, inter alia, in Poland will be broadcast by TVP. At the same time, he assured that ski jumping will not completely disappear from the sports TV schedule.
“We will be in Wisła, Zakopane, at the Olympic Games and at the World Championships in flights. And every weekend in the Sports Evening – the Third Series. And, and there will be surprises.
The next two World Cup competitions will be held on November 27 and 28 in Finland. Live broadcasts of the competition will be available on TVN, Eurosport and Player.pl.
