Cable TV operator Multimedia has suffered increased resignation of clients from cable TV services and expects more to come as works on the bill that would force cable TV and DTH operators to reveal customer data progress, Multimedia said in a comment to the bill.
"The planned amendment to the bill on TV licenses creates a risk of massive cancelations of cable TV contracts by subscribers," the company said, adding that signing new deals would also be affected.
"The number of resignations and declines in interest in pay TV might be significant, as shortly after publications of first press statement on the bill, Multimedia Polska recorded first resignations from cable TV services," the company said.
The resignations could affect VAT and Corporate Income Tax (CIT) receipts of the state, the company notes.
At issue is a planned bill that would task cable operators with the obligation of collecting radio and TV sets registration from their clients as the Polish government seeks ways to boost media license fee collection.
