Telewizja Silesia (TVS) is a Polish private regional television channel broadcasting to Silesia. Its target audience are the residents of the province of Silesia. Since its launch on March 29 2008, it has been broadcasting local information (Informacje Silesia), outreach programs, entertainment programs, music videos and concerts and news items about local cultural and other events. Every day at 7 am, its schedule begins with a live broadcast from Radio Silesia, thanks to a camera located in the studios of the radio station. The TV channel’s own programmes start at 11 am with local events and teleshopping. TVS broadcasts a first region wide newscast at 5:45 p.m., the “Silesia Informacje”, and this is rebroadcast several times throughout the evening and night.
Via a Hot Bird Eutelsat satellite, TVS can be received throughout Europe with the utmost clarity. This is achieved by means of a satellite positioned at 13 ° East.
TVS produces not only television but also two radio programs: Radio Silesia and Silesia Radio Club, which are streamed on the Internet. Radio Silesia is also, as has been mentioned above, broadcast daily from 7 to 10 am live on TVS Television.
