On 27 December 2012 the Broadcasting Council published announcements about the possibility to apply for four TV licences for channels transmitted in the first multiplex. The licences are for different types of channels (a film channel, a popular science channel, a kids’ channel and a religious channel). The applications should be submitted by 25 February 2013. The new channels will replace the channels of TVP (the Polish public broadcaster) which will be moved to another multiplex.
