Disney+ Coming to France’s Canal+ in March

Facing competition from Netflix, which has topped 6 million subscribers in France, pay-TV operator Canal+ has inked a deal with Disney+ to bring the SVOD service to the country by the end of March.

“This exclusive partnership is a new major step in the transformation of the Canal+ model,” Maxime Saada, CEO of the broadcaster, told French daily Les Echos.

The deal is interesting since Canal+ inked a similar distribution deal with Netflix in September, offering subscribers direct access to the SVOD behemoth with single €35 monthly fee, which included pay-TV, movies and TV shows from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO.

“Netflix is the global reference in the industry with world-acclaimed shows,” Saada said at the time. “This offer complements our all-round offer of first-run movies, major live sports events, world-class series, including our Créations Originales. It also helps us further consolidate our position as a key aggregator of content and services.”
