About DVD/Blu-ray and On-Demand-services (Video on Demand) VOD sales in Norway

Distributors of DVD/Blu-ray in Norway are required to report sales numbers. For films on video on demand (TVOD and EST), you must report on the number of titles stored on a Norwegian server in a network.

Report on sales numbers DVD/Blu-ray

Sales numbers for the latest quarter must be reported to the Norwegian Media Authority. The numbers are used to calculate the fee.

Only the number of units sold (discs - videograms) to Norwegian sales links must be reported. Units that are returned are deducted from the tax base. 

Report on sales numbers Video on Demand

You should only report on titles that have not previously been reported and paid a fee for. The fee is paid for each copy that is subject to rental or sale, and not on the basis of how many times the copy is sold or rented out to the customer. If a title is available for sale or rental at e.g. two Norwegian service providers, two sales must be reported. 

No fee shall be paid for titles that are only available through a subscription service that provides free access to all content (SVOD). However, if in such a service there are individual titles that are subject to sale and / or rental, a fee must be paid for these titles. The fee is paid once per title.
