DisneyModern Times Group-owned streaming service Viaplay has signed a deal with Disney Nordic to offer Disney Movies on Demand in Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

Franca Rossander, general manager of media distribution at The Walt Disney Company Nordic, added: “The launch of Disney Movies on Demand on Viaplay is key in our ambition to make our high quality content available to our Nordic audience, when they want it and via the platforms that they prefer.”
