Orange teams up with the French Tennis Federation and France Télévisions to offer Roland-Garros to its subscribers
Paris, Orange has signed multi-year agreements with the French Tennis Federation (“FFT”) and with France Télévisions covering Orange’s broadcasting of the Roland-Garros French Tennis Open Championships from 2010 to 2013. These agreements include several aspects as follows:
The channel Orange sport will broadcast in high definition the best matches taking place on the Philippe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen courts based on a licensing agreement with France Télévisions, the tournament’s official broadcaster.
For the first time ever, Orange will enable its broadband and fibre-optics subscribers who are already equiped with a 3D compatible TV set and special glasses to experience the event in 3D : from 26 May to 6 June 2010, a selection of meetings will be broadcast live in 3D on a dedicated Orange TV channel in partnership with France Télévisions, the tournament’s host radio broadcaster.
For the sixth year in a row, Orange will provide its “Tennis Everywhere” service to keep abreast of matches via TV, PC and mobile phone. Orange will exclusively broadcast up to 7 event channels produced and edited by France Télévisions.
- Orange TV: 7 channels produced and edited by France Télévisions with interactive features enabling viewers to watch live, exclusively and simultaneously all matches played on the main courts, as well. The matches taking place on the Philippe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen courts will be broadcast in high definition.
- Orange mobile phones: 5 channels produced and edited by France Télévisions, to watch live, exclusively and simultaneously matches played on the main courts, video on demand, results, statistics and match updates in real time.
- orange.fr: live and simultaneous broadcasting via broadband streaming of matches on the seven main courts based on event channels produced and edited by France Télévisions, as well as video on demand daily summaries and complete editorial coverage.
- The Orange sport info channel will also be at the heart of the event to bring viewers all the latest news of the tournament. Orange sport info is available on Orange TV, orange.fr, the Orange World mobile website and on the BIS TV satellite package.
Orange will become the “new media broadcaster” and “official mobile broadcaster” for Roland-Garros.
Backed by these agreements with the FFT and France Télévisions, Orange is strengthening the alliance begun with the FFT in 2002 to enable tennis fans to experience this legendary tournament even more intensely.
