Sub's share was 753 000, so the pay tv crowd was around 200K.

In Finland the channels with pay tv services have been making heavy losses lately and have found out they're not getting their investment back via subscribers. Bonnier owns MTV3 which has rights to World Championships on all levels (though they are obligated by law to show Finland's games and the medal round on free tv from the men's tournament), EPL, UCL, F1 plus various winter sports. They had to lay off a lot of people and drop La Liga after posting record losses. Nelonen has Liiga rights and supposedly want to re-negotiate that contract because the amount of subscribers is way less than they expected. Does Viasat have money to acquire "everything" in Sweden?
