Telia brings out new media box with built-in Netflix app

Tuesday 18 October 2016 | 13:23 CET | News
Telia Company said its new media box comes with built-in access to Netflix and is available in Sweden and Finland from 18 October. The new receiver will be phased in to other countries in 2017. Existing Netflix members will be able to start the Netflix application at several points, including the main menu, electronic programme guide (EPG) and app store. This eliminates the need to have a separate device and to switch between TV inputs and remote controls. New customers can simply sign up straight from the app.
