Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) says subscribers will be able to watch over 15 TV channels.
The service is already live in Norway and Sweden.
Included are YLE TV1, YLE TV2, YLE Teema & Fem, MTV3, Sub, TV5, Kutonen, TLC, FOX, AVA, Frii, National Geographic, Discovery, Euronews, MTV and Eurosport 1. Customers will pay an additional €5 per month on top of their existing Viaplay subscription.
“Viaplay TV is NENT in a nutshell – constantly innovating to deliver an even broader and better experience,” said Anders Jensen, NENT Group President and CEO. “We were the first in the Nordic region to launch a full streaming service, then the first to add linear TV channels, and now we’re meeting viewers’ demands in Finland for an even more comprehensive service that seamlessly integrates streaming and channel offerings.”
Viaplay will be compatible with Google Home and Google Home Mini when they arrive in stores across Scandinavia on 24 October. Google Home is the first ever smart speaker to respond to voice instructions in Danish, Norwegian and Swedish languages.
