Elisa is one of the largest producers of Finnish dramas, she has launched 20 original series, notably “Arctic Circle,” “All Sin,” “Shadow Line” and “Bullet”. The service will continue to provide series, and will also support Finnish films.
Viplay is already the largest Scandinavian streaming service and has recently launched in Iceland across Nordics. The banner has already launched 80 original sources and is set to roll out 30 more this year.
Ander Jensen, president and chief executive of NNT Group, said NNT Group “aims to break new ground in streaming with the most innovative market share.”
