Norway's biggest cable television operator Avidi has changed its name to Canal Digital Kabel TV, a logical move now Telenor Avidi has become a division of Canal Digital Norge.
Telenor has grouped all TV distribution, via cable and satellite alike, under one dynamic management and one name. Such a significant development within the television sector became possible following Telenor’s acquisition of all of Canal Digital’s shares in the summer of 2002. Canal Digital is Telenor’s television distribution brand name.
“The day-to-day TV experience of our 380,000 cable television customers doesn’t change. They have the same choice of TV channels and Internet as before, and remain customers of a Telenor-owned company with all the assurance that carries”, says Canal Digital Norge Managing Director Svein Erik Davidsen.
Customers will be informed by letter and in newspaper announcements that Canal Digital Kabel TV now provides their television content.
“The streamlining of all Telenor’s TV operations allows us to coordinate professional expertise and competence, it results in a simpler corporate management structure and sets the scene for a smarter and more effective way to operate”, says Svein Erik Davidsen. Canal Digital is part of the Telenor Broadcast business division.
