Viaplay and Viasat have secured the latest 20th Century Studios films along with distribution of Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD in the Nordic region.
There will also be new and returning ABC series including Emergence and Grey’s Anatomy that will be streamed on Viaplay.
“This agreement will extend our relationship with Disney to nearly 20 years and showcases both the popularity of their content with our viewers and the fantastic viewing experiences available on Viaplay and Viasat. We will now show even more of the world’s biggest films and series for years to come,” said NENT Group Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam.
The first-pay window for 20th Century Studios, previously known under the Fox moniker, includes critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning titles such as Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite and the 2020 Oscar-nominated Jojo Rabbit and Ford v Ferrari, alongside the most recent instalment in the successful Terminator franchise.
“We are delighted to extend and expand our content partnership with NENT Group as we together look to bring Nordic audiences more original stories across more screens from the legendary 20th Century Studios,” said Hans van Rijn, SVP and Country Manager of The Walt Disney Company Nordic. “Furthermore, we are thrilled to continue to offer Viasat subscribers our full portfolio of the Disney TV channels.”
Fox+ and National Geographic, now a part of the Disney stable, are covered by other agreements.
