TVP World news channel Jacek Kurski United States USA Canada

The management board of TVP accelerated work on the launch of TVP World. The station was supposed to start broadcasting in early 2022, but it was already on Thursday, November 18. The reason was the crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border and disinformation, propaganda of Russia and Belarus. TVP World is available via the Eutelsat 33E satellite and the tvpworld.com website. In the first days of broadcasting the channel, representatives of the Polish community complained that after trying to start the live stream, they received a message that, due to licensing reasons, TVP World is not available in their country. Such signals flowed, among others from the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan.

“Geoblocks have been removed”

After our publication, the TVP Information Center addressed the matter. – On Saturday, November 20, geoblocks were removed and the TVP World stream via the Internet is available without restrictions around the world – informs the broadcaster of the public portal Wirtualnemedia.pl. A Pole living in Chicago confirms to us that the live stream on tvpworld.com can now be watched in the USA. However, the message that it cannot be collected for licensing reasons is still displayed on YouTube in the United States.

In an interview with Wirtualnemedia.pl, Jacek Kurski, the president of TVP, promised a quick solution to problems with the reception of TVP World in the world. – I am glad that we already have feedback from such distant countries. Thank you for this signal. Because it means that they already want to see us there. This is felix culpa (editor’s note: “happy guilt”), because if they cannot watch us somewhere, it means that they want to watch us first. We will explain it. The tvpworld.com portal is the primary address. From it, every agency and everyone else can take our content without restrictions. This is the fundamental change. Satellite broadcast will be, but later – said Kurski.
