Nordisk Film and Com Hem partner up in a deal that gives Com Hem’s customers the possibility to be the first to stream the many local and international films Nordisk Film brings to the market. They will also have access to the streaming service Nordisk Film+ as well as a range of Swedish crime drama series.
Nordisk Film and Com Hem have signed a three-year film deal that secures access to a great range of films and series for Com Hem’s customers. Com Hem acquires the first pay TV rights to the approx. 50 new Swedish, Nordic and US film titles that Nordisk Film bring to the market every year.
Swedish films such as Min Pappa Marianne and Charter will have their exclusive streaming premiere on Com Hem’s platform, after they have been in the cinemas and been available as digital buy and rent. US blockbusters that will have exclusive streaming premiere includes Knives Out, Angel has Fallen and 1917.
Com Hem’s customers will also gain access to Nordisk Film’s streaming service Nordisk Film+ that features the best of Swedish, Scandinavian and Hollywood films. Swedish crime drama series such as The Millennium Trilogy, Johan Falk, Maria Wern and Liza Marklund’s Annika Bengtzon are also part of the deal that will strengthen Com Hem’s offerings of local film content substantially.
“I am very happy for this partnership, which provides a great variety of quality movies and series for Com Hem customers, and makes sure they can be first to stream new international and Swedish blockbusters once they have been released. It is also an important step as we continue to evolve our tv offering for the future, to grant our customers the best range of content going forward”, says Samuel Skott, EVP Chief Commercial Officer, Tele2.
“We are excited to enter into a strong collaboration with Tele2. Through Com Hem they reach nearly two million Swedish households which means that the many great films we have in our slate will be seen and enjoyed by even more Swedes across the country. We want to be the leading producer and distributor of films across the Nordics with a clear goal of expanding our operations in Sweden, and with this deal we secure important revenue to the Swedish film industry,” says Kenneth Wiberg, GM, Nordisk Film Distribution.
