Viaplay will be launched on the Dutch market in March 2022. The Nordic Entertainment Group confirms that to streamwijzer.nl.
The Swedish party has bought the Formula 1 rights for the coming years. This means that Ziggo Sport will say goodbye to Formula 1 at the end of this season. There are still many questions about the subscription types. In any case, NENT knows that Viaplay will be available for the Dutch viewer from March 2022. In addition to Formula 1, the Premier League, Darts and the Bundesliga will also move to the new platform.
First quarter 2022
“We are hard at work preparing for the launch of Viaplay in March,” said a NENT spokesperson. The start of the Formula 1 season is also in March and therefore the launch date is quite understandable. “We have always indicated that Viaplay will be launched in the first quarter of 2022 and that is still the promise,” the spokesperson said.
It was recently announced that Amber Brantsen will provide the presentation during the Formula 1 broadcasts. Former Formula 1 driver and analyst Robert Doornbos is also in talks with the Swedish party. It is not yet known who will be added next.
