- the best of Finnish viewing in Sweden and across Europe!

TV Finland is a digital television satellite channel directed primarily towards Finns living abroad. The programming is compiled from domestically-produced quality material supplied by YLE’s channels and the commercial MTV3.

TV Finland has already been available for twenty years in the areas of Sweden with a strong Finnish-speaking minority population. Transmissions to these areas will continue as before.

For the remainder of Europe, direct reception of the TV Finland signal requires an dish antenna, a digital receiver-decoder, a CA-module and a smartcard. In additon to direct satellitereception TV Finland can also be seen through local cable-tv stations in Sweden, Norway and in Estonia.

For viewers of all ages

TV Finland transmits roughly 110 hours of programming weekly during the autumn and spring television seasons. In the summer months the output is slightly smaller, since the three channels supplying the programme material also cut back on their airtime during the long light summer days. The programme package is very diverse and offers something for everyone.
TV Finland supplies viewers wishing to keep up with events in the north and worldwide with several news bulletins daily in both Finnish and Swedish.
