DTT Problem in Poland

There are reports that there have been problems with DTT broadcast of some channels of public broadcaster TVP in Poland. The national transmission company, Emitel, said that there were problems in 11 of the 137 transmitters due to “synchronisation problems”.

Analyst Comment

Political tensions in Poland made some wonder whether there was more to this than a simple technical problem. In that situation, I find the phrase I was taught some years ago is useful “Do not ascribe to malice what can be explained by incompetence or inefficiency”. Taking that point of view can reduce stress a lot! That this should be thought shows how critical TV is to communities, these days. (BR)
