Canal Plus inks VOD deal with Disney

Canalplay Infinity nabs first U.S. major deal

PARIS — Gallic pay TV group Canal Plus has inked a deal with the Walt Disney Company to feed its new subscription-based VOD service Canalplay Infinity.

The deal, which marks Canalplay Infinity’s first agreement with a U.S. major, covers about 100 titles from Disney’s library, including “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” “Air Force One” and “National Treasure,” as well as ABC Studios’ TV drama series such as “Desperate Housewives” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Canalplay Infinity is available on DSL nets provided by major French broadband operators, SFR, Free and Bouygues Telecom. It will launch on PCs and tablets, including iPads, by next week.

According to Francois Godard at Enders Analysis, Canal Plus Group is prepping itself for the potential arrival of digital services like Amazon in France. “If any of these digital players were to establish a presence in France, Canal Plus would already have contracts with the main broadband operators and a subscription base.”

Canalplay Infinity gives subscribers unlimited access to films for a monthly fee of €9.99 ($13.20).
