According to Rzeczpospolita, citing nc+ president Manuel Rougeron, the OTT TV offering will focus on homegrown productions, including a second season of crime series Belfer.
He said nc+ had no plans to collaborate with rival SVOD players such as Netflix and Showmax.
Netflix last year moved to localize its service in Poland and has struck a partnership with service provider T-Mobile to allow the latter’s customers to pay for Netflix through their accounts. South Africa-based, Naspers-owned SVOD service Showmax announced that it was launching a service in Poland in February.
Nc+ marketing chief Jacek Balicki has meanwhile told Polish press that the pay TV operator now has 366,000 customers for its nc+ Go TV Everywhere service, adding that the bulk of users were watching linear channels rather than on-demand content.
Nc_+ ended last year with 2.12 million customers, flat year-on-year. Revenues amounted to €492 million.
