Since premiering its first original show in 2016, Viaplay has established itself as a leading producer of high-quality, psychologically penetrating crime drama from the Nordic region – a style of screen storytelling known as ‘Nordic noir’. Viaplay’s offering also includes young adult series, historical dramas, documentaries and much more.

Shows available on Viaplay through The Roku Channel in the US include the Danish thriller Trom starring Ulrich Thomsen (The New Pope); the hit Swedish crime series No Time to Mourn; and Norway’s acclaimed drama Exit with Tobias Santelmann (Point Break).

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.”

In addition to The Roku Channel, Viaplay is currently available in the US via Comcast’s Xfinity platforms. Viaplay will make its own direct-to-consumer Viaplay app available in the US with a separate launch in early 2023.
