Viasat was a satellite and pay television brand, co-owned by the Swedish media group Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) in the Nordic countries, Sony Pictures Television in Hungary, and by Viasat World internationally. Founded in Sweden in 1991, Viasat has previously been owned by Modern Times Group. The channels of both companies were broadcast from London.

In 2020 Viasat formed a joint venture with Canal Digital to form the company Allente.[1] The merger was completed on April 13, 2021.

Satellite platforms

The Viasat signals can be received from the Astra 4A and SES-5 satellites at 4.8°E with any DVB-S receiver equipped with a NDS VideoGuard descrambling module. Viasat does not have a platform of their own outside the Nordic and Baltic countries, so they have to rely on third party distributors in Eastern and Central Europe.[citation needed]

In May 2016, MTG announced the launch of Viasat Ultra HD, the first ultra-high-definition television (UHD) channel in the Nordic region and its first UHD Sports channel. The channel will feature selected live sport events especially produced in Ultra HD and launch in the autumn in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland via SES-5. Viasat will also be launching an Ultra HD set-top box from Samsung and a TV-module to enable existing UHD TVs to display the channel.[2]

TV channels

Nordic countries

The Nordic Viasat-branded operations are owned by NENT. With the exception of Viasat 4 in Norway, the brand is no longer used for the advertising-funded and free-to-air channels of NENT.

V Film and V Series

V Film and V Series channels are common for the four Nordic markets.


The available sports television channels differ across the Nordic markets due to the varying broadcasting rights. In Norway and Denmark, most of the NENT-owned sports channels use the brands Viasport and TV3 respectively.
