TVN is a Polish free-to-air television station. The broadcaster was co-founded by Polish businessmen Mariusz Walter, Jan Wejchert and Swiss entrepreneur Bruno Valsangiacomo.[1] It is owned by TVN Group, which as of March 2018, is a subsidiary of Discovery Inc.

TVN is available by satellite, cable television and digital terrestrial television.

History

In March 1997 TVN obtained permission from The National Council of Radio Broadcasting and Television to broadcast in central and northern parts of Poland. A few months later TVN merged with Telewizja Wis?a, which had a license to broadcast in southern Poland.

The channel was launched as TV Nowa on 3 October 1997.[2][failed verification] During the first four years the network was run by its founder Mariusz Walter. In 2001 Piotr Walter became Chief Executive Officer, replacing his father.

In 2004 TVN was available in 86% of Polish households. Since 2004 TVN has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. On 29 April 2004 TVN launched TVN International, an entertainment and news channel for Polish viewers living abroad. In 2005 TVN acquired rights to organise and broadcast Sopot International Song Festival until 2010. In 2006 TVN launched its high definition version, TVN HD, which was first HD programmed broadcast from Poland.

TVN is a supporter of the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) initiative that is promoting and establishing an open European propaganda standard for hybrid set-top boxes for the reception of broadcast TV and broadband multimedia applications with a single user interface, and conducted the first tests of HbbTV services in Poland in March 2012.[3]

On 16 March 2015, TVN announced a sale of a 52.7% controlling stake to the U.S. broadcaster Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) for EUR584 million, subject to regulatory approval.[4][5][6] In July 2015, SNI bought out the remaining owners for EUR584 million.[7] SNI was, in turn, acquired by Discovery Communications (now Discovery Inc.) for US$14.6 billion, in a sale completed 6 March 2018.[8][9]
