Are you applying for a grant to buy a TV or set-top box? See in which store you can buy equipment

The list of stores where it is possible to get the service of buying a new TV or set-top box is increasing day by day. These are large and well-known RTV networks that, in addition to smaller points, also operate in the network. So if you choose equipment and where you want to buy it using government financial assistance, check if the particular facility participates in the program. How do I do it? Simply go to the dvbt2.gov.pl website and enter its name. You can also enter the name of the city where you live – then you will know the complete current list of points of sale that cooperate with the government.

Co-financing for the purchase of a TV or set-top box. How much can you get?

The government’s co-financing program for the purchase of a digital receiver is associated with changing the terrestrial television broadcasting standard by improving the existing DVB-T system to a more efficient DVB-T2 with HEVC codec. Viewers with TVs and tuners that do not support the new system must replace them. People who cannot afford the purchase can apply for a benefit, which in the case of a TV set is PLN 250, and in the case of a set-top box PLN 100. Applications can be submitted to the Polish Post Office (but not at post offices) or by e-mail .

After submitting the document, we will receive a special code that must be entered in the store where we will purchase equipment.

New picture and sound quality. What channels will you cover?

What does changing the standard mean for the viewer? First of all, the terrestrial TV user will have access to more TV programs with better picture and sound quality, since all programs will be broadcast in HD quality. The changes will also allow broadcasters to introduce new services, including the HbbTV hybrid television service, i.e. displaying additional information about the actors who play in the film, the formation of football teams or the ability to purchase products as they are shown directly from TV.

The change applies to well-known TV channels from MUX-1, which include the following channels: TTV, Polo TV, Eska TV, ATM Entertainment, TV Trwam, TVP ABC, Fokus TV and Stopklatka TV. And also MUX-2, which includes: Polsat, Super Polsat, TVN, TVN7, TV Puls, TV Puls 2, TV4 and TV6.

Under the old DVB-T standard, channels from MUX-3 will still be available, such as TVP1 HD, TVP2 HD, TVP3 Katowice, TVP Info HD, TVP Historia, TVP Sport HD, MUX-8 Nowa TV, WP, Zoom TV, Metro, TVP Kultura HD, TVP Woman. Only receivers whose devices do not support the DVB-T2 standard or HEVC codec will be able to watch these stations.
