I've read that there is a test going on with DVB-T (digital terrestrial TV; pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVB-T) in Krakow. Does this mean I can receive all channels digitally for free? Do I need to subscribe somewhere? I have a TV with a build in DVB-T tuner; will this work, or do I need a separate decoder with smarcard?

Thanks!

I think you still have to pay "abonament rtv" ;)

Do I need to subscribe somewhere?

As far as I know you don't.

I have a TV with a build in DVB-T tuner; will this work, or do I need a separate decoder with smarcard?

Just tune in and check out. UHF channel 37, freq 602,00 MHz, antenna polarity H, MPEG-4. Be aware that is emitel.pl/strona-glowna/dvbt-krakowkrzemionki-k37.jpg (low power transmitter).

I was just wondering if anyone happens to know whether it's possible to watch any Polish channels via terrestrial digital TV (DVB-T) these days, and if so, where. Thanks.

There is a switch over timetable and forum to discuss it.

Quite frankly, DVB-T in Poland is a joke, analogue is due to switched off completely in three years yet you cannot receive a digital signal in the vast majority of the country. Parts of Poland is supposed to switch over this year.

Krakow had a 'test' transmission which has now been switched off.

As of last Tuesday, 13 digital channels are operating in Krakow.

Mux-3 went live with mainly TVP channels, its low power only 2KW against 100KW for Mux-2.

Here is the timetable for the rest of the country

Mux-1, goes live 31st may 2012 in Krakow.

Its like 1999 in the UK, makes me all nostalgic.
