- NENT Group’s TV channels and Viasat pay-TV channels continue to be available to Telia customers in Sweden
- Partnership reflects NENT Group’s strategic focus on distribution deals that ensure continued reach of its TV channels and streaming services across the Nordic region
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has extended its distribution agreement with telecommunications and TV operator Telia in Sweden. Telia will continue to offer NENT Group’s TV channels and Viasat pay-TV channels to its customers in Sweden.
The extension of NENT Group and Telia’s long-term partnership means Telia will continue to distribute NENT Group’s TV channels TV3, TV6, TV8, TV10 and TV3 Sport HD in Sweden, as well as the Viasat pay-TV channels. All Viasat customers will continue to have access to NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service as part of their subscriptions.

Long-term partnerships are a key priority for NENT Group as we look to bring our unique content offering to more viewers across the Nordic region. This extended agreement is another important step in the development of NENT Group.”
