Telewizja Polska S.A. (TVP S.A., [ˈtɛ ˈfaw ˈpɛ] Polish Television) is a public broadcasting corporation, the only public broadcaster in the territory of the Republic of Poland and with 13 national and 16 regional channels it is by far the largest Polish television network. About a third of TVP's income comes from a broadcast receiver licence, while the rest is covered by commercials and sponsorships.

Non-Polish language broadcasting includes Belsat TV – channel in the Belarusian language presenting news and subject-specific programming for the people of Belarus. Broadcasts 16 hours per day.

International cooperation

TVP has an agreement with the BBC, under which they will work together in film and television productions.[2]

The French-German TV liberal arts network ARTE cancelled a 15-year cooperation with TVP,[3] when it learned in February 2009 that TVP's general director, Piotr Farfał, was a member of the League of Polish Families, which opposed Arte’s "philosophy based on intercultural exchange"[4] and "the party that TVP's chairman is presently connected with does not share European values".[5] It was again cancelled in January 2016 after an amendment of the media law in Poland, which caused fears of a lack of pluralism and independence of TVP.[6]
