About Us

Against the Tide TV (Idź Pod Prąd TV) is a Polish independent TV station providing the most relevant news from Poland, Europe, Americas and the world. In our reporting on foreign events, we focus particularly on the USA, Mid-Eastern Europe, Israel, and the Far East, i.e. the locations where we have our correspondents. We present analyses in the areas of politics, education, economy, history, armed forces, and religion. What distinguishes us from other media outlets and makes us unique on a national scale, is taking into account the Biblical perspective in our commentaries. The founder and editor-in-chief of Against the Tide is Paweł Chojecki, an evangelical pastor of the New Covenant Church of Lublin.

Our motto:

Go against the tide. There is no time for other directions.

Most of our viewers are Polish speaking, but we also publish content in other languages. Primarily in English as well as German, French and others.

We broadcast on YouTube, Vimeo, our own idzpodprad.tv platform, Facebook, Twitter and others.

Some of our longstanding flagship shows include:

  • Against the Tide LIVE – a commentary on current events, broadcasted live Monday – Friday
  • News Service – twice a day Monday – Friday
  • Pastor Paweł Chojecki’s messages live – Sundays and Fridays

Our other shows:

  • Counter-evolution – dealing with evolution versus creationism
  • Family ER – counseling for parents and homeschoolers
  • Way to Heaven – discussions by a former Catholic priest and the pastor

Financing:

Our television is financially supported solely by our viewers. We don’t rely on private or public handouts which allows us complete freedom of speech on any chosen topic. This is unparalleled throughout Poland.

Why hussar wings?

By featuring the hussar wings in our television’s logo, we are referring to a glorious period in Poland’s history when we were both a stronghold of personal freedoms and military power of Europe. Polish heavy cavalry, the hussars, were invincible at the time.
