The airtime will be mostly filled with TV programs of own production, but there will be also available the foreign ones, i.e 9.5 hours per day. According to the new channel’s spokesman, in the near future the company will purchase programs and films of BBC and Polish production. The cooperation with Russian content providers is not on the agenda.
