What Streaming Wars?! Local content and services reign in the Nordics. In Sweden, SVT and Viaplay command over 50% daily viewing time. DR in Denmark boasts an 85% reach for national news. And in Norway, NRK’s gripping dramas keep audiences glued to their screens.

Our panel – Annika Bidner, Product Owner at SVT Play, Casper Hald, Head of Strategic Distribution & Partnerships at DR, Bjarne Andre Myklebust, Head of Distribution at NRK, and Stein Erik Sorhaug, SVP Americas at Vimond Media Solutions, together with Ben Keen – discussed the characteristics of this unique market, and outline strategies to help local broadcasters in other territories thrive.
