In a statement, SVT said that increasing competition in the international market has decreased the number of subscribers to the channel to such point that the venture, a JV with ConNova, is no longer feasible.
However, the channel will continue to be available to viewers in Finland. Subscribers who paid for a longer period will receive a refund.
SVT World is available on satellite and IPTV. The channel is broadcast on Eutelsat 9A and Thaicom 5, as well as an OTT service via IP.
