RTL To Offer Polish Service
  LUXEMBOURG, 96/11/10 (TS) -- Luxembourg's CLT/UFA has announced it will
begin a new Polish language channel, RTL-7, from December. The channel has
been expected from the company for over a year and will finally launch on
December 7.

  RTL-7 will broadcast via Eutelsat from its base in Luxembourg to viewers
across Europa in addition to Poland. The programming will be produced in
Warsaw and will include locally produced programming in addition to dubbed
foreign programming.

  CLT/UFA currently owns 100% of the channel but reports suggest an un-named
US group may take a 50% share in the channel shortly. CLT's RTL is one of
Europe's largest media groups and has recently agreed to merge with
Germany's UFA.
