Norwegian TV channels
The list of Norwegian TV channels is based upon information from a range of different sources.

A Norwegian channel is here defined as a channel that specifically targets a Norwegian audience and where the main language is Norwegian. A nationwide channel is a channel whose signal can be received virtually throughout the whole country. Some nationwide channels may only reach a minor part of the population but can potentially be accessed by a majority, depending on cable or satellite subscription.

Distribution: C = Cabel, S = Satellite, DTT = Digital terrestrial television.

Presentations of TV channels in the other Nordic countries can be found at Nordicom.
