Norway's TV 2 seeks state subsidies for domestic content

Monday 8 August 2016 | 12:03 CET | News
Norwegian commercial broadcaster TV 2, which belongs to Danish company Egmont, is seeking state support to continue the general broadcasting obligations that it has been carring out since 1992, according to newspaper Dagbladet on its website. It said TV 2's CEO and chief editor Olav T Sandnes considers this compensation. Dagbladet said it is completely out of step with today's media developments to think that a commercial television channel needs state funding to keep carrying domestic news, culture and the Norwegian language.
