News 10-year agreement between Eurozet and Emitel

Eurozet Radio Sp. z o.o. and Emitel S.A. have concluded a new ten-year contract for the provision of transmission and broadcasting services of “Radio ZET” radio programme across Poland. Radio Zet is one of the pioneering organisations transforming radio broadcasting in Poland.

The first broadcasts took place in 1990 in Warsaw. Thanks to the extension of their broadcasting licence to include the whole Polish territory, in 1994 Radio Zet started broadcasting in many new areas, taking advantage of the unique technical infrastructure provided by Emitel. The previous agreement between the companies was effective from January 2013. By signing a new ten-year contract, Eurozet decided to go with a reliable technical partner with the greatest experience on the Polish radio services market, which guarantees the highest quality of service. The cooperation will enable the achievement of business objectives of the radio and creating the best programming offer for the listeners of Radio Zet.

“The radio sector in Poland is doing great. In the era of ever-changing technology, the growing popularity of streaming services and mobile market, which we consistently take advantage of, the FM signal still remains the most popular source for the audiences thanks to the enormous number of receivers. That is why it is important for us, as one of the market leaders, that the quality and range of FM Radio ZET signal are as good as possible. The new contract concluded with Emitel will enable us to maintain the high quality level of our broadcasts,” says Andrzej Matuszyński, CEO of the Eurozet Group.

The new contract was concluded between the parties for a ten-year period of the new broadcasting license. It covers broadcasts from 55 Emitel broadcasting stations across Poland. The cooperation has been extended to include new elements, which will provide the broadcaster with additional security of the broadcasting network. In the event of possible failures and malfunctions, Radio Zet will have backup equipment and alternative broadcasting facilities at its disposal at all times for the duration of planned maintenance and repair downtime. Full technical responsibility for signal transmission and its broadcasting based on the Operator’s own devices will be assumed by Emitel. Thanks to this solution, the broadcaster will be able to focus on preparing the best possible programming offer for the audience. The new contract also includes the possibility of presenting multimedia content of the Eurozet Group on a hybrid TV platform on Multiplex 8 of terrestrial television, operated by Emitel.

“I am glad that the Eurozet Group has decided to go with Emitel’s services for the next 10 years. This mutual trust, which we have been building and fostering for a long time has resulted in a much broader scope of cooperation, which was described in the new contract. Radio Zet focuses on continuous growth in Poland and I am pleased that Emitel can support one of our key clients in these efforts,” said Andrzej Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.
