Our own history began with Modern Times Group, the international entertainment group. We started our journey in 2003 as an in-house channel provider for MTG’s Viasat satellite TV platforms in Scandinavia and the Baltics. Over the next 12 years, we successfully expanded to Eastern and Central Europe, Russia, the CIS, Africa and across the world.
In October 2015, we became an independent company. To align our corporate brand with our popular TV channels and content brands that viewers know and love, we changed our name from MTG World to Viasat World in May 2016.
