Said Vanda Rapti, Viaplay Group Chief Commercial Officer, North America and Viaplay Select:

“Launching on The Roku Channel offers Viaplay outstanding reach in the world’s largest streaming market. Our award-winning series and films, many with internationally recognised stars, are an ideal fit for The Roku Channel’s diverse line-up of Premium Subscriptions. Premium Nordic content has a dedicated audience in the US, and fans can now experience the most stylish and thrilling stories that the region has to offer.”

A Viaplay subscription available through The Roku Channel gives stateside fans of Nordic noir crime dramas, Scandi thrillers, young adult dramas and more, a second option for accessing Viaplay content in the US. Viaplay launched in the States a year ago this month on Comcast’s Xfinity platforms. A third option will become available in early 2023, when Viaplay launches its own direct-to-consumer Viaplay app. (Stay tuned for updates.)
