Nordic media consolidation set to continue as US VoD firms still dominate in Q4

Tuesday 6 February 2018 | 15:39 CET | News
Swedish consultancy Mediavision predicts more consolidation on the local VoD market, which is still dominated by US operators that invest heavily in content. It said the recently announced merger of TDC and Modern Times Group's entertainment arm should be looked at against that background. Netflix and HBO Nordic extended their share of the Swedish market to 65 percent from 61 percent in Q4 2016, despite growth at regional firms such as Viaplay and C More.
