Netflix Ties Up with CANAL+


A newly inked partnership will see Netflix included in CANAL+ bundles.

Subscribers to the Cine/Series package will have access to the CANAL+ premium channel as well as the Netflix service, all under the one subscription. This new, exclusive offering will include the Netflix Standard offer (2 screens, HD) and launch at €15 ($16.50) a month, in addition to the subscription fee to CANAL+. It will also include over 20 movie and series channels already available in the Cine/Series package.

The offer will initially launch in France but is intended to be expanded in other territories operated by CANAL+ Group, starting shortly with Poland.

Reed Hastings, founder and CEO of Netflix, said: “We’re excited to work with CANAL+, one of Europe’s leading media companies. We both share a love of entertainment and this partnership will make it easy for CANAL+ customers to get the complete Netflix experience—and with only one bill. Great stories can come from anywhere and be loved everywhere—and we’re committed to helping more people access a diverse range of content from creators all around the world both on Netflix and through our partnership with CANAL+.”

Maxime Saada, CEO of CANAL+ Group, commented: “We are very pleased to partner with Netflix to offer our subscribers the richest movies and series bundle on the market. Netflix is the global reference in the industry with world-acclaimed shows. 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. “
