Altibox to make Viaplay streaming option available later this year

Wednesday 8 April 2020 | 12:03 CET | News
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) said it has expanded its long-term distribution agreement with Norwegian TV and broadband operator Altibox, part of the Lyse group. Later this year, Altibox viewers will be able to include NENT's Viaplay streaming service in their subscriptions for the first time, and continue to watch its Viasat pay-TV offering and Norwegian television channels. This means Altibox's TV viewers can follow NENT's coverage of the popular FIS winter sports events from autumn 2021.
