TVP 3 is Polish public television network owned by Telewizja Polska.The channel broadcast news, reportages, entertainment, sports, series, documentaries and regional programmings.
In the beginning, TVP Regionalna existed only as an umbrella brand for TVP regional affiliates. By the late 1990s, all TVP affiliates were connected together into a single national network, producing local news as well as some shows which were broadcast nationwide. In 2003–2007 from 7:30 to 22:30 it aired nationwide news bulletins every hour. It was also used as the Polish parliamentary channel, transmitting the Sejm meetings, parliamentary inquiry commission's proceedings and other major political events. In 2005, four new regional bureaus were created by splitting one bureau each from TVP Kraków, TVP Katowice, TVP Gdańsk and TVP Poznań. This move increased the number of bureaus to 16, one for each Polish voivodeship.
In 2007 TVP 3 was replaced by TVP Info. This channel has broadcast regional programming (from 17:00 to 20:00 and from 21:45 to 22:15 every day).
On September 1, 2013 local programs were separated from TVP Info and moved to the reactivated TVP Regionalna (from January 2, 2016 under the name TVP 3). In fact, TVP3 is not a single channel but sixteen regional channels with local programming (currently from 7:00 to 8:15 and from 17:30 to 22:15 every day). The rest of the schedule fills a common program with magazines, documentaries and current affairs programs.
Its main offices are located at the TVP news compound in central Warsaw. TVP 3 can be watched via TV aerial or cable networks and via DVB-T.
