Sena is an Icelandic company that is owned by 365 (365 ljósvakamiðlar), an Icelandic mass media company, which produces eight TV stations, five radio stations, one newspaper and a website. Sena specializes in the distribution of music, films and videos.
Sena also runs the Smárabíó, Regnboginn and Borgarbíó Akureyri movie theaters.
Sena took over two important record labels:
- Skífan record label founded by Jón Ólafsson in the mid 1970s in Iceland. It had close co-operation with Swedish label Polar and RCA Scandinavia. It was taken over by Sena in the latter half of the 2000s.
- Steinar record label (founded in Reykjavík in 1975 by Berg Ísleifsson) and its catalog owned by Skífan from its earlier acquisition. Steinar also ran a sub-label based in UK called Steinar Records UK Ltd. It was very active in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. But label was sold to Skífan in the 1990s.
