Modern Times Group MTG AB is a Swedish media group comprising free and pay TV channels, radio channels and production companies.

An MTG Group TV company, Oy Viasat Finland Ab, including the leading television, film and sports streaming service Viaplay, operates in Finland.
The cooperation between Modern Times Group and Digia dates back to 2015, when MTG asked Digia for assistance. The company's former DevOps provider had walked, and they now had a group of websites that had been administered exclusively by this one provider.
Digia’s task was to help the customer with DevOps functions, retrieve the customer’s old sites, determine how and with what they had been built, and transfer them to Digia’s own service for maintenance and administration. At the same time, we improved site security by introducing HTTPS encryption protocols and limiting access and admin rights to the site.
There were a total of fifteen sites: the group site www.mtg.com, the company’s annual report site, a sustainability site and several smaller sites. Digia took over the management of the sites one at a time, and maintains and develops them to this day.
The project employed one WordPress developer for approximately six weeks, and the sites were published on schedule at the end of 2015.
