5 December 2011

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Nobel Media have struck an agreement whereby the EBU will distribute live coverage of the Nobel Prize events until 2013.

This year's Nobel Prize Events, on 10 December, are expected to be watched by millions of viewers when the signal is carried on the EBU's Eurovision Network.

Norwegian and Swedish public broadcasters and EBU Members, NRK and SVT, are the production partners for these events, which will be broadcast from Oslo and Stockholm.

Under the three-year contract, the EBU will also provide a live stream of the events, which include the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony, the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony and the Nobel Banquet, directly to the Nobel Prize website, www.nobelprize.org.

Stefan Kuerten, EBU Director Sports & Business said, "We are honoured once again to support this prestigious event. The EBU has over 60 years' experience in providing premium content to broadcasters and media organizations in a seamless, reliable and cost-effective way."

CEO of Nobel Media, Camilla Hyltén-Cavallius, commented, "To capture worldwide interest in the Nobel Prize and Nobel Laureates, we are happy to use the EBU's premier services to secure global distribution of our programmes."
