Poland: Catholic station denied space on digital TV
January 31, 2012
Poland’s bishops have lamented a decision by the National Broadcasting Council to deny Trwam, a popular Catholic television station, the opportunity to broadcast on digital TV.
“The exclusion of a Catholic TV station violates the principles of pluralism and equality before the law,” the administrative council of Polish bishops said in a recent statement.
96% of Poland’s 38.4 million people are Catholic, according to Vatican statistics.
