Polish media giant TVN is launching a raft of original programming for its Player.pl streaming service.
There are also two online unscripted series and spin-offs of shows from the TVN linear channels including Kuchenne Rewolucje. Powroty (Kitchen Revolutions Returns) and Zony Hollywood Wiêcej (Hollywood Housewives).
In a rare example of an OTT service sharing some usage statistics, TVN said the average Player.pl user now consumes eight and half hours of content a month on the service, and that there are two million consumers accessing the service each month.
The Polish channel and OTT operator is now owned by US-based Scripps Networks Interactive.
Speaking about the OTT content push, TVN CEO Markus Tellenbach said: “TVN’s original online productions are developed specifically for today’s young media consumer – shorter episodes and a concentration on action to accommodate mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as evidenced by Web Therapy, our first online original production starring polish oscar-winning actress Agata Kulesza.”
