NENT to launch Viaplay in Baltic countries in Q1 2021, including local original productions

Wednesday 20 May 2020 | 13:28 CET | News
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) said it will launch its Viaplay video streaming service in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the first quarter of 2021. New local originals for the Baltic markets will be developed by NENT Studios and with third-party production companies. NENT said less than 20 percent of the 2.8 million households in the three Baltic countries currently pay for SVoD service, compared with over 50% in the Nordic region, even though most Baltic country homes have fast fixed and mobile broadband connection that are being upgraded.
