NTB – The Norwegian News Agency

NTB is the leading provider of text, images, videos and graphics to the Norwegian media. We also deliver a wide range of other services, such as distribution of press releases, production of visual content, storage of images and language training courses.

We invest in developing technology solutions for media, such as AI, robot journalism and mediabank (DAM). We are a full service supplier of sports data and we take pride in delivering the fastest, richest and most accurate data to our customers.

Actually, our vision is to be the most innovative news agency in Europe. Let’s get there together! We cooperate with news agencies worldwide, and provide technology solutions that bring you up to speed.

Our history

NTB was established in 1867. In the early years it was privately owned. After World War I, the agency was acquired by AS Norsk Telegrambyrå, a limited company owned by a group of newspapers. Images have been part of our news services since 1932.
