Blockbuster expands to Sweden, Norway and Finland

Wednesday 28 June 2017 | 13:51 CET | News
Danish operator TDC's SVoD arm Blockbuster said it is expanding to Sweden, Norway and Finland. The Nordic expansion will be gradual but it hopes that one in four Nordic movie rentals will be from Blockbuster within two to three years. The Blockbuster brand name is little known in those countries but the firm is confident that there is a market for a streaming service where viewers only pay for what they watch.
