Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has extended its agreement with Swedish cablenet Com Hem and its sister company, DTT platform Boxer.
The agreement makes NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service and Viasat pay-TV channels available to further customers of Com Hem and Boxer. NENT Group’s Swedish TV channels TV3, TV6, TV8 and TV10 will also continue to be available to Com Hem and Boxer customers.
From this month, access to Viaplay’s film and series package will be included for customers of Com Hem’s highest tier pay-TV offering, TV Guld.
All of Viasat’s premium film channels and the on-demand Viasat film library will be available to top-tier subscribers of Com Hem and from later in the year, Boxer.
“Our partnership with Com Hem ensures that world-class content is only a click away for millions of viewers. Viaplay will now go directly into Com Hem’s top-tier TV package while our Viasat channels will be available to more people than ever before,” said Kim Poder, NENT Group Chief Commercial Officer.
In addition, the Viasat Sport channel and the newly launched Viasat Sport Extra channel will be added to Com Hem and Boxer’s mid- and top-tier packages this year. Customers can also continue to subscribe separately to the full range of Viasat sports channels and to the Viaplay sports package.
Samuel Skott, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer at Com Hem: “It’s great that we can continue to develop a successful partnership with NENT Group as it gives our customers access to fantastic content. At Com Hem, our main focus is to offer a wide range of entertainment, and I am therefore proud to present an extended offering of NENT Group’s strong content.”
In February, NENT Group secured additional digital terrestrial television (DTT) licences in Sweden, which will enable the company to offer a broader range of its TV channels to DTT households.
In addition to this extended agreement, NENT Group has long-term distribution partnerships with Boxer, Stofa, Waoo and YouSee in Denmark; Altibox, Canal Digital, Get, NextGenTel, RiksTV and Telenor in Norway; A3, Bahnhof, Connect TV, Kalejdo, Mediateknik, Ownit, Sappa, Serverado, Telia and Universal Telecom in Sweden; and DNA, Elisa and Telia in Finland.
