NENT Group has extended its Nordic distribution agreement with Telenor. The announcement follows October’s news that NENT Group and Telenor Group are to merge their consumer operations, combining Viasat’s satellite pay-TV business with Canal Digital’s operations.
This new agreement spans Telenor’s fixed line and satellite TV offerings. NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service, free TV channels and Viasat pay TV channels will be offered to Telenor customers.
The fixed line agreement covers Telenor’s cable and IPTV operations om Sweden and Norway. It includes NENT Group’s TV3, TV6, TV8, TV10 and TV3 Sport channels in Sweden; and TV3, TV6 and Viasat 4 channels in Norway. NENT Group’s premium Viasat sports and film packages, along with the Viasat Golf channel, will be available to Telenor’s fixed line subscribers in both countries.
The satellite agreement covers Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and includes NENT Group’s TV3, TV6, TV8, TV10 and TV3 Sport channels in Sweden; TV3, TV6 and Viasat 4 channels in Norway; and TV3, TV3 PULS, TV3+, TV3 MAX and TV3 SPORT channels in Denmark. NENT Group’s premium Viasat sports and film packages will be available to Telenor’s Canal Digital subscribers in all four countries.
Kim Poder, NENT Group Chief Commercial Officer: “We want Viaplay and our TV channels to be available in as many homes as possible. Telenor customers across the Nordic region will now be able to add Viaplay to their TV subscription, and this will increase our reach even further.”
Telenor currently holds over 1.7 million TV customers across the Nordic region.
