Content: Canal+ announces two major new strategic partnerships

The Canal+ group signs distribution agreements with Sony Pictures and Universal. The Vivendi subsidiary is seeking to find common ground with Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+ and HBO Max/Discovery+.

“After partnerships with Fox, Disney, Warner and Paramount studios, Maxime Saada announces two new long-term structural agreements with Universal and Sony”said the Canal+ group on Twitter yesterday on the sidelines of its back-to-school conference at its new headquarters.

Through these two new distribution agreements, the leading French pay-TV group wishes to accelerate its programming of American films. The Vivendi subsidiary will have access to new films from the studios six months after release, a spokesperson told Variety.

At the same time, Maxime Saada, chairman of the management board of myCanal, said he was looking to sign with three other platforms, namely Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video and HBO Max/Discovery+ which should be launched in France in 2024.

As a reminder, Canal+ is today a major aggregator of streaming platforms thanks to agreements signed with Netflix, Disney+ and Starzplay. And that’s not all, since the SVoD Paramount+ service will be integrated into Canal+ offers by the end of the year.
