Fox, Canal Plus add VOD

New releases and library titles available on demand

PARIS – Canal Plus and 20th Century Fox have struck a video-on-demand agreement allowing CanalPlay, Canal Plus’ VOD service, to offer the studio’s new releases and library titles.

Non-exclusive agreement is the second VOD deal struck with a Hollywood major after Sony, which pacted with Canal Plus around the time of CanalPlay’s launch a year ago.

The pay TV group has not given further details on takeup since April, when it announced it had sold 600,000 downloads bought in its first six months of operation, from a selection of 1,000 titles.

But Canal Plus claims it is the front-runner amid a handful of similar services in Gaul.

Consumers can buy a film on VOD 7½ months after its theatrical release for E4.99 ($6.35), or get a library title for $5. Movies can be watched via video streaming or downloaded for later consumption, and can be watched as many times as the consumer likes in a 24-hour period.
