There is a network of "Polish Cultural Institutes". The London one advertises an online learn polish course focused on children, this seems to be a partnership with a web-radio station called 'Fun Kids'.

eBooks/audio books - empik.com
I have a huge collection of fairly short stories (as PDFs) with accompanying audio (each one is about 5 minutes) as well as the Polish translation of one of my favorite novels (in ebook format) that I bought online from Empik (which is an amazing website for audibooks and ebooks in Polish).

Here’s a list of public television programs with audio description:
http://www.tvp.pl/dostepnosc/filmy-z-napisami-w-serwisie-tvppl

There are 66 pages to look into if you have the time, but just the very first position “Boso przez świat” is great. It’s a travel program hosted by the controversial Wojciech Cejrowski. Very entertaining and insightful.

The most popular Polish VOD platforms:
https://vod.tvp.pl/
https://player.pl/
https://www.ipla.tv/
Most of the content is free, but there are a lot of commercials

Very interesting! Thank you for letting us now about this method. Could you please give us some more information? Is this resource like Orberg's LLPSI, i.e. is the vocabulary explained by little drawings and word definitions in the target language?

I found out that this text is also available with English (http://www.polandbymail.com/i/6349/we-learn-polish-2-books-2-cds.htm), French, German and, probably, Italian explanations. The newer editions of this book come with CDs or MP3s. The audio can be bought separately (http://www.wiedza.pl/mobile/pl/p/Uczymy-sie-polskiego.-1---2-CD/33).

I bookmarked “Uczmy, się, Polskiego” sometime ago but can no longer remember exactly why I did so. In any event, for those who are interested, the audio recordings seem to be available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUXpY6vbPWdT97GzbkSwUGSMYFdyVIQ0_
