Polish regulator investigates Vivendi's pay-TV platform

WARSAW, April 2 | Tue Apr 2, 2013 10:22am EDT

WARSAW, April 2 (Reuters) - Polish authorities will investigate the country's No.2 pay-TV platform Nc+, majority-owned by France's Vivendi, over client complaints that could mean a fine of up to a tenth of last year's revenue.

The platform's offer, launched last month to compete with the market leader, Cyfrowy Polsat, included a new programming set-up and pricing.

It unnerved some clients, who complained on social media and to competition regulator UOKiK over the price and cancellation procedures.

"The one-sided change in agreements (...) as well as too short a time given to place a cancellation, and informing about the new offer in a plain letter caused UOKiK's doubts," the regulator said in a statement on Tuesday.

Nc+ was not available for comment.

Nc+, which has around 2.5 million clients, included the offer in its first advertising campaign after Vivendi and Polish broadcaster TVN merged their local pay-TV platforms as part of a wider partnership deal.

In just under two weeks since its launch, the platform has lost its deputy head Beata Monka and marketing chief Marek Staniszewski. An anti-Nc+ Facebook profile has been liked by more than 53,000 people.

Nc+ is 51 percent-controlled by Vivendi, with TVN holding 32 percent, and the remaining 17 percent in the hands of Liberty Global unit UPC.

That’s not the most interesting part of the story. The most interesting part is that not even ONE of all Polish TV stations informed on it! Also, the major news sites (all belonging to media corporations) are totally SILENT on the story, and all comments are censored/ removed.

It is time for Europe to understand that Polish citizens are not second-clas citizens. Average pay in Poland is 500 euro and all inclusive TV packet in NC+ costs 50 euro (1/10 of monthly income). In Europe monthly income is 1500 euro and the biggest TV packets are: CanalSat France – 39 euro, Canal + Spain – 35 euro, Sky DE – 39 euro and Sky Irlandia – 35 euro. Analyze that!
