On February 25, ATM Entertainment ended the broadcast. ATM Grupa went to court. She filed a complaint with the Regional Administrative Court in Warsaw, accusing the National Broadcasting Council of failing to apply for an extension of the license.

This means that the company may apply for the restoration of the concession – informs next.gazeta.pl. The verdict is not final and the National Broadcasting Council may appeal, but it has not reported such steps so far.
