“TV 2 is looking forward to gaining access to NEP’s global technical resources and experience. In a market with an increasing need for investments and innovation, OB-Team will have a more suitable home in NEP than in TV 2,” said Øivind Johannessen, OB-Team’s Chairman of the board and director at TV 2.
