TV Polonia ceased broadcasting on December 14, along with Polskie Radio 1 and 2.

"TV Polonia is a network targeted to Polish-speaking audiences outside of Poland. It broadcasts many of the shows also broadcast by TVP's domestic channels. The network recently made the decision to cease broadcasting in Canada. This decision was not made by Shaw...It will not be replaced with another channel. The network itself has decided to cease broadcasting in Canada."

Telus posted similar messages for Telus Optik TV and Telus Satellite (which it resells on behalf of Bell.)

I've actually dug further, and apparently it was pulled in the US too. The channel in North America was actually being run by a different company, and said agreement lasted only until December 14 of this year and was seemingly not renewed.

There also seemed to be some sort of copyright dispute between them over TVP having streamed some of their programs online in breach of the operator's rights
