with NoScript, I found out the following domains that tv.nrk.no uses:


With these unblocked, the Flash player launched, and a trailer for a
new tv show played. Though I don't use LibreJS.

With Network Inspector, I got a few more:

az416426.vo.msecnd.net — a Microsoft Azure domain. The important part
is vo.msecnd.net
nrk-od-08.akamaized.net — video stream
