What is NRKbeta?

NRKbeta is the technology site of the Norwegian Broadcasting – NRK (about NRK on Wikipedia).

Our Norwegian slogan reads «NRK’s sandbox for technology and new media».


This site is coded in an advanced codec called Norwegian. It’s only readable by about 4,7 million people. So from time to time, when we have something we really would like to show the world, we decode it into English.

English articles

We put our English articles in a categori called – tadaaaa – «English articles»:


The most popular one is currently «Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) makes popular series available DRM-free via BitTorrent» with close to 800 diggs, 77 comments and over 100 links/trackbacks.

If you would like to contact us, use our Twitter account or our contact form (which is in Norwegian but should be pretty obvious for English readers).

    i wish that svt wont be as cool as nrk, then they will force everyone who owns a computer to pay tv-license

  2. I Denmark (where i live, though I am norwegian), computers are valued equal to TVs in the license calcuation for a household. The justification? one can visit dr.dk and watch streaming video, in horrible quality and Windows-only codecs, and with horrible latency. le sigh :(
