Multimedia giant proposed

The state-owned NRK broadcasting system, the commercial channel TV2 and the telecommunications company Telenor are investigating whether to create a jointly owned media giant for digital and interactive services. Board members for the three companies have discussed the possibility of spinning off all activities that can supply content to digital and interactive services, then merging them into a single company. According to Dagens Næringsliv, the three media companies have negotiated secretly but under the watchful eye of several government ministries.
