Alright! I also thought of something like "News in Norwegian". The Swedish counterpart "Nytt på svenska" is something that could be used in book stores, libraries, record stores - as a part of the collection.

-Har ni något nytt på svenska?

I'm considering it too, and I agree, that's a bad sign. It doesn't feel right, but maybe it would work in certain contexts.

It could be used like that in Norwegian too.

Strange, I found it on Amazon.com, here is the link.


If you were thinking Xenops instead of the more recent (and awesome) Netflix production Ragnarok (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9251798/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_3), season one is available on Netflix. Netflix was set to produce a second season, but that was delayed due to pandemic. It is available in the original Norwegian as well as other languages. I watched the first season, thought it was really good. Absolutely loved the scenery.

Yes, that was the show I was referring to—I just wondered if we could buy digital files outside of Netflix, or DVDs? Or does Netflix currently own all rights?

I was able to find DVDs for Occupied, but I personally don’t find it as interesting. :?

Hi Xenops,

Ragnarok is a Netflix production, rather than third party content acquired by Netflix for streaming purposes, so my guess is nope, it will not be available (DVD or otherwise) than on Netflix. I believe the business model to be to produce content that can only be accessed on Netflix to drive up the subscriber base.
