Get fails to reach channel distribution agreement with TV2

Monday 1 June 2020 | 12:18 CET | News
Telia Norway said its ISP and television provider, Get, has failed to reach a new distribution agreement with TV2, belonging to Egmont of Denmark. It said it is trying to avoid Get customers having to pay more than they already do for a worse channel line-up. Viewers are watching TV2 channels less and less so Get cannot ask them to pay for output they do not want, while TV2 aims to limit what customers can watch outside the home.
