MTG APPLIES FOR DIGITAL TERRESTRIAL BROADCASTING LICENCES

Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today
announced that it has applied for licenses to broadcast its Viasat
television channels on the Swedish digital terrestrial broadcasting
network.

The application is conditional on the result of ongoing negotiations
regarding Viasats wish to become an operator of the digital terrestrial
network.

The presence of Viasats channels on the digital terrestrial network
would increase the range of content available to TV households, and the
inclusion of Viasat as an additional operator of the digital network
would benefit viewers by creating freedom of choice.
