Pay-TV group Viasat has agreed a carriage deal for its channels on the IPTV service operated by Norwegian telco Telenor.
Modern Times Group-backed Viasat has already agreed a similar deal with Telenors Swedish subsidiary Bredbandsbolaget and now its channels will be carried on TelenorÂs broadband-delivered TV service in Norway. Specifically, ViasatÂs six Norwegian and Swedish free channels and pay TV movie, sports, kids and documentary packages will be available on IPTV in Norway.
ÂTelenor is the largest broadband operator in Scandinavia and this deal indicates the clear and growing demand for our portfolio of high-rating free-TV channels and wide range of popular premium pay TV content,Â said MTG CEO Hans-Holger Albrecht. ÂIPTV distribution is complementary to our own DTH satellite platform, and enables us to address households that we have not been able to reach before.Â
