Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) and Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) have entered into a three year deal for Scandinavia that secures the library of MGM’s greatest movie hits and an exciting range of new MGM Television series for NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service and Viasat pay-TV channels. The deal includes the 25th instalment from EON Productions to be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and starring Daniel Craig, plus, the 24 preceding official James Bond movies.

The deal also includes the upcoming MGM Television series Perpetual Grace LTD and Four Weddings and a Funeral. In addition, MGM will co-produce and globally distribute three NENT Group original productions outside Scandinavia.

For the next three years, NENT Group’s Viaplay and Viasat platforms will be the exclusive Nordic first-window homes of the MGM film slate. Viaplay customers will be the first in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland to stream Tomb Raider and The Girl in the Spider’s Web, and can enjoy all-time classics such as The Hobbit, Rocky, RoboCop, When Harry Met Sally, Thelma & Louise, John Wick and many more.

Anders Jensen, NENT Group President and CEO:


“Setting ourselves apart by working together – this remarkable agreement sums up NENT Group at our very best. Partnerships are at the heart of our vision to become the leading Nordic streaming service provider and content producer with a global appeal. MGM is a legendary studio that needs no introduction and we are delighted to work together. Our cooperation secures some of the world’s most attractive films and series for NENT Group’s customers, while giving even more of our original productions the opportunity to be seen by audiences around the globe.”
