Turnover in Discovery Networks Norway is estimated by medianorway. Until 2015 the turnover includes radio activities in SBS Radio Norway. In 2015 the radio company was sold to the British company Bauer Media which is owned by the German Bauer Media Group.
Turnover data 2014 onwards are no longer comparable to previous years, due to changes in the international accounting standard IFRS. From 2014 revenue in joint ventures cannot be included in total group turnover. The effect of this cange varies between companies, depending on the scale of co-ownership.
Telenor's turnover in the media sector is estimated by medianorway. Total turnover of the whole Telenor Group is more than ten times the media turnover.
