Orange and Canal+ Group sign agreement to broadcast Canal+ and Canalsat channels via Astra satellite
* Multiannual agreement allows Orange to offer its triple play customers even more content via the ADSL/satellite mixed offer
* Canal+ thereby strengthens its commercial presence with Orange triple play subscribers
* Canal+ and Canalsat catch-up TV services will soon be available to all Orange TV customers who subscribe to these bouquets
Orange and Canal+ have signed a multiannual agreement to allow Orange triple play customers who are not eligible for TV by ADSL to subscribe to Canal+ and/or Canalsat, as well as Foot+. Via Astra satellite, in 2009, Orange triple play customers with satellite TV will be able to receive these offers directly on a single ADSL/satellite hybrid set-top box provided by Orange.
A technical cooperation agreement between Orange and Canal+ Group will allow both partners to use the same satellite resources. To broadcast its own channels, Orange also signed an agreement with SES Astra. The service that Orange TV is offering its triple play customers via the Astra satellite will thus be close to that available via ADSL.
As well as the bouquet of Orange TV channels and catch-up services, all Orange triple play subscribers to Canal+ and Canalsat bouquets will now be able to access Canal+ catch-up on demand and Canalsat on demand.
These services, included in the subscription to Canal+ or Canalsat channels and already accessible via PC, will be available in 2009 directly on TV via the decoder supplied by Orange.
