TV Puls is a Polish commercial television channel, which was based on Telewizja Niepokalanów with the support of companies such as PKN Orlen, KGHM Polska Miedź, PZU Życie, Prokom and which started broadcasting in March 2001. Due to financial problems, it ended broadcasting on April 1, 2003. With the help of the private company Antena 1 and of the owner of Polsat, Zygmunt Solorz-Żak, TV Puls resumed broadcasting in June 2003. Until recently, the station's programming was largely devoted to Catholic issues, as the majority of the company's stock was owned by the Franciscan Order.

In 2006 News Corporation acquired 35% of the stock and began a major overhaul of the programming. The revised channel, with a new logo and a more mainstream target group, launched on October 28, 2007. The new logo consisted of the word "PULS" which was made by a typeface called VERSO and it was coloured red but on the same day, TV Puls began broadcasting a new information program: Puls Raport. But on July 16, 2008, it was decided to remove the program from the schedule. The reason for this decision was the poor audience share results and the excessively high costs of production. However, its VERSO typeface logo was short-lived, because this logo was never successful and is remaining a short use in 11 months. In September 2008, TV Puls' 2007 rebrand was retired in use and TV Pulsa adopted a new logo which consisted of a bar which was coloured in silver and orange. The silver bar is thin and short because it bears the word "TV". The orange bar is fat and long because it carries the word "Puls". Later on November 3, 2008, it was announced that News Corporation has sold its 35% stake to the remaining shareholders.

The channel develops. It gives many entertainment programs, series and documentaries. TV Puls in June 2010 received a license to broadcast channel for children and young people Puls 2 (launched on July 19, 2012).
