Discovery reaches new carriage agreement with Telenor Sweden

Thursday 11 February 2016 | 10:48 CET | News
Swedish broadband provider Bredbandsbolaget and its sister company pay-TV provider Canal Digital have reached a new agreement to offer TV channels from Discovery Networks. The channels had disappeared for their around 800,000 TV customers at the start of February, after the companies failed to reach a new carriage agreement. The Telenor subsidiaries, including Canal Digital in Sweden and Norway, said the new long-term distribution agreement means the channels from Discovery are back as of 11 February.
