Here you can watch two short videos explaining the problem.

The true about the scandal over not granting digital broadcasting license to Trwam TV

The support for Trwam TV

TV Trwam has several millions viewers, and has been broadcasting since 2003.
The non-profit Catholic TV Trwam is in excellent financial standing and is funded by viewer donations, demonstrating its success and dedication to the public mission.

The transition from analog TV to digital TV offers an expanded number of channels accessible throughout the Polish territory.

The Polish Broadcasting Council's decision to exclude TV Trwam despite its multi-million viewer base, long term presence and excellent financial standing have raised questions because broadcasting licenses were granted to newly-created corporations with no assets, ones that never aired a single program before, or had a single viewer, and whose only capital consists of highly leveraged, risky, one-year loans.

A number of commentators have pointed out the fact that the Broadcasting Council was elected by the ruling parties, the Civic Platform (PO)Â and the post-communists (SLD), which may have influenced the decision against TV Trwam.

Polish Bishops see the exclusion of the station broadcasting religious programs as a violation of the principles of pluralism and equality before the law, especially since the vast majority of Polish citizens are Catholics and should be assured unhindered access to the programs of catholic TV Trwam over the modern digital television system.

Some commentators state that this action echoes the dark years of soviet-imposed communism in Poland between 1944 -1989.
Because the Roman Catholic Church defended democratic values and provided support to anti-communist opposition and later to the Solidarity movement, many Catholic priests were killed by the Polish communist internal intelligence agency (SB)

So far 2 200 000 people has signed the protest against discrimination against Trwam TV and demanded granting digital broadcasting license to Trwam TV from the Polish National Broadcasting Council.

On 25 May 2012 there will be a trial at Administrative Court in Warsaw concerning not granting the digital broadcasting license to Trwam TV. Also on this day the demonstration supporting Trwan TV is planned.
