A+E Networks UK continues the expansion of its factual entertainment channel History in Norway following a pay DTT deal with RiksTV.
Preliminary financial figures for RiksTV show the Norwegian DTT operation made an operating profit of NOK 45.8 million (€5.90m) in 2010 after four years of losses.
Espen Thorsby is to step down as head of Norwegian DTT pay platform RiksTV. In a message to staff Thorsby described the job as very interesting and informative, but at the same time demanding.
Almost 50 years of analogue television broadcasting have come to an end in Norway. Transmitters in Troms and Finnmark were switched off at 13.30 yesterday (December 1).
The sale of the troubled Norwegian pay-TV company RiksTV remains uncertain after the owners were unable to achieve a satisfactory price for the DTT operation.
