Soon TV6 will also disappear in the cable network

Update (2021-10-04):

At the turn of the month, TV6 was encrypted in the digital terrestrial network and now it is also clear that the channel risks disappearing from many cable networks soon.

According to a message that Tele2 sent out to property owners around the country, the idea is that TV6 will be removed from the basic offer on 31 October.

TV10 comes back as a band-aid, this after a period of absence.

The background to the decision is that NENT has decided to change direction on TV6, something you can read more about below.


If you watch TV via a standard TV antenna, you may have discovered that TV6 is encrypted in the terrestrial network from 1 October.

The reason why TV6 is encrypted is that Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) has decided to change the direction of the channel and invest in more live sports. In the next few months, football from the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League, the Women’s Handball World Cup, the Junior World Cup in ice hockey and cross-country skiing will be offered.

If you want to continue watching TV6 in the terrestrial network, you need to pay for a subscription with Boxer. An alternative solution is to get a streaming service, such as Comhem Play or Telenor Stream, and look at your computer, touchpad or mobile phone.

The change means that now only SVT’s channels and TV4 can be seen unencrypted in the terrestrial network. TV Finland is also offered in some areas.
