Ground tremor in sports and audiovisual: Canal + will cease broadcasting League 1 football next season, to protest against the LFP’s decision to withhold the Amazon offer.
“After the failure of Mediapro’s choice in 2018, Canal + regrets the decision of the Professional Football League (LFP) to retain today the Amazon’s proposal to reduce the number of its historical partners CANAL + and beIN Sports. Canal + therefore does not broadcast Ligue 1 », announced the crypto television group (Vivendi branch) in a statement.
663 million euros per year
After a full series of rebates, the League announced this Friday, June 11, that it will sell its TV rights for the next three seasons on Amazon and Canal + against 663 million annual euros, rather than opting for the Canal + / beIN Sports tandem .
Touch not to my Champions League!
“As part of the return, the Canal Group + offers its subscribers, for the first time, the two most beautiful posters of each day of the Champions League and, from 11 August, the Supercup (Supercoupe d’Europe, NDLR) between Chelsea and Villarreal. The most prestigious European competition completes a rich sports offer from the Premier League, Top14, Formula 1, or even MotoGP, broadcast in full », a fait valoir Canal +.
