V4 (Norwegian TV channel)

V4 (formerly Viasat 4) is a television channel broadcasting to Norway owned by the Modern Times Group. The channel was launched test on 28 September 2007, a week 14 June 2014 after the launch of the digital terrestrial television network in Norway, replacing ZTV which ceased broadcasting shortly before.

The channel opened with the European Championship qualifying match between Moldova and Norway. Its main focus is on entertainment, sports and documentaries, transmitting series such as Most Shocking, Stargate Atlantis, The 4400, Star Trek, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Riches, UEFA Champions League matches and Futurama, with short news bulletins from P4 on weeknights. Viasat 4 also transmits several comedy series, such as Cheers, Married... with Children and 8 Simple Rules.

Viasat 4 was originally to be named TV4, but after complaints from Swedish TV4 AB at the Patent Office, the channel was renamed 4 before becoming Viasat 4.

The original intention was that the channel would broadcast free-to-air via RiksTV. The operator of the commercial muxes was, however, intending to broadcast pay television, so the channel would be a part of the encrypted RiksTV package.

In 2010, Viasat 4 showed 16 World Cup matches from South Africa, including the bronze final between Germany and Uruguay. Viasat obtained the rights from NRK.

The name of the channel was changed from Viasat to V4 in June 2020 as part of an overall rebranding of Viasat TV channels.

Watch Live UFC streaming with a VPN in Norway

A VPN functions by routing all the traffic flowing to and from your device via an encrypted tunnel. The software keeps internet service providers, hackers, and government surveillance agencies at bay by making it almost impossible for anyone to monitor your digital footprint. A VPN obfuscates your location, thereby granting you access to geo-restricted content that’s not normally available in Norway.

We get into a lot more detail on each provider below, but if you are short of time, here’s our list of the best VPNs for Norway:

ExpressVPN Our #1 Pick. Outstanding performance with super fast, secure and private servers. Can unblock most geo-restricted sites and services with ease. Includes 30-day money back guarantee

NordVPN Operates one of the largest VPN networks globally that easily gets around geo-blocks. Nicely priced and private.

CyberGhost Packs some of the fastest servers we’ve tested. Apps are beginner friendly.

IPVanish Works well with Kodi and other remote-controlled devices. Fast servers.

PrivateVPN Up and coming growing network with a good unblocking reputation.

ExpressVPN is one of the hardiest VPN providers out there, incorporating military-grade encryption standards, fast speeds, and a broad global network.

At the time of writing, this provider offers more than 2,000 servers to choose from including options in Norway. ExpressVPN is known to work really well with a glut of geo-restricted streaming media services, including US Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and BBC iPlayer. It offers customer support via live chat around the clock.

ExpressVPN uses 256-bit AES encryption; that’s considered to be an industry-leading standard, also referred to as ‘military-grade.’ This provider values your safety and security on the internet and will keep your location hidden at all times. There’s an in-built internet kill switch, along with DNS leak protection, so your information always remains locked within the encrypted tunnel.

It rigidly follows a policy of not storing any detailed user logs, including IP addresses. ExpressVPN offers modern, intuitive apps for Android and iOS, as well as sleek desktop versions for both Windows and MacOS. A single subscription allows for three simultaneous connections.
