TVS (Television Silesia; Silesian: Telewizja Ślōnskŏ, German: Television Schlesien, Polish: Telewizja Śląska) is the first regional Silesia commercial DVB-T free-to-air television station with information and entertainment profile. The TVS television channel is directed mainly to the inhabitants of the Silesian Voivodeship, covering the historical lands of Upper Silesia and Lesser Poland (including Dąbrowa and Kraków basins). The company and its television studios are headquartered at Grunwaldzki Square in the Silesian Metropolis of Katowice. TVS was created as a competitor to the public service broadcaster TVP3 Katowice. TVS started broadcasting on 29 March 2008 at 10:00 am in 16:9 format.


Years 2006–2007

At the end of 2006, an application was submitted to the National Broadcasting Council for a channel license.

  • 19 March 2008, the TVS regional channel launched a test broadcast.

  • 14 April 2008 at 9:00 pm, the news magazine "Silesia informacje" (Silesia information) debuted on the air.
  • 5 May 2008, TVS decided to extend the broadcasting time of the program and increase the number of news and current affairs programs.
  • 5 July 2008, "Radio Silesia na wizji" (Radio Silesia in vision) debuted, the first program of this type in Poland.
  • Since 4 December 2008, the station has been available to the Polish community in the US and Canada. The program was broadcast around the clock.
  • During Christmas 2008, TVS aired its first entertainment films. On 31 December 2008, the station organized its first New Year's Eve party in Katowice.

Year 2009

At the start of 2009, it was decided to broadcast TV drama, entertainment shows and movie films on a regular basis. In March 2009, Teletext was introduced. On 29 March 2009, TVS prepared the "TVS Open Day" with performances by stars from the Silesian entertainment stage.

In October 2009, Marek Czyż became the new TVS program director until 2011. Czyż replaced Sławomir Zieliński [pl], who left the station two months earlier.

Since the beginning of the station's existence, its programs informed mainly about events from the Silesia region. TVS also broadcasts programs promoting Silesia, its culture, history, traditions and regional Schlager music—where TVS together with Radio Silesia 96.2 FM actively engages in the promotional process of regional music artists on the Silesian music stage. The main programme subjects related to the Silesia region and the Silesian Voivodship dominate.

In addition to information, journalistic and entertainment programmes, TVS also airs iconic Polish and foreign drama programmes such as Magnum, P.I., Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice and Kojak with soundtrack voice-over translation. Since 2011, a gradual process of expanding the nature of the television station and changing the format to include nationwide events whilst maintaining a regional character of information has begun. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day.
