Nent Group and Telia have not agreed on a new distribution agreement. Thus, about 470,000 customers will lose access to channels such as TV3, V4, and TV6 from Monday.
“Unfortunately, we have not been able to agree on a new agreement within the expiration deadline of the previous agreement, and we apologize to all our customers,” Pål Rune Kaalen, head of the private market at Telia Norway, noted in a press release.
Telia is determined to find a solution, Kaalen emphasized. He says that the core of the conflict is the customer’s choice and that customers shouldn’t have to pay for content they do not want to see.
Access to the channels TV3, V4, TV6, Viasat Nature, Explorer, History, V Sport +, V Sport, V Premium, V Film Family, and V Sport Golf will be cut. In addition, the streaming services Viaplay and Filmfavoritter will also be affected.
Commercial manager Kim Poder in Nent Group says that the distribution cooperation must be “correct for both parties.”
Poder pointed out that the company has agreements with other distributors in Norway.
