Cyfrowy Polsat adds touch of romance

Polish pay TV operator Cyfrowy Polsat has added Germany-based channel Romance TV HD to its programming line-up.

The channel, which will be part of Cyfrowy Polsat’s Film HD package, will air in MPEG-4, available to users with HD set-tops.

Mainstream Networks Holding-owned Romance TV offers a diet of female-focused films and TV series, including adaptations of works by romantic novelists Rosamunde Pilcher, Inga Lindstroem, Barbara Wood, Utta Danella and Emilie Richards, as well as movies including Statek Marzeń (Ship of Dreams) and series including Burza Uczuć (Storm of Emotions). The channel will be presented by Polish actress Aleksandra Wozniak.

Tim Werner, director of operations at Mainstream Networks and Romance TV Germany, said that the move into Poland would have a positive effect on the company’s plans to expand internationally.
