Earlier on Friday, TV2 and Telenor reached an agreement on a new long-term cooperation agreement.
The new agreement means that 550,000 customers of Telenor TV’s service, T-We, will bring TV 2 back to their screens, TV 2 and Telenor wrote in a joint press release.
The agreement means that Telenor customers will have access to all TV 2 channels and the TV 2 Play streaming service, which is part of the TV package.
We want to thank all of our customers for their patience. They can now watch good content from TV 2 again via T-We. We have entered negotiations with a desire for a long-term cooperation with TV 2, as we invest more in Norwegian high-quality content, and create a better TV product for our customers. Those ambitions are addressed in the new agreement, says Camilla Amundsen, Head of Television and Broadband at Telenor Norway.
TV 2 said in its press release that it is relieved that the new agreement is now in effect.
We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Telenor for a long-term, future-oriented cooperation agreement. Now we can finally welcome our viewers back, and we thank you for your tested patience. The agreement is significant in the fierce competition against international broadcasting services, and guarantees viewers quality Norwegian content in the coming years, says TV 2’s editor-in-chief and CEO, Olav T. Sandnes.
The previous agreement expired on November 30 last year and since then the parties have negotiated overtime. From December 3, Telenor customers lost access to TV 2 channels.
The two parties have long disagreed over price and content, but have now come to an agreement.
