Canal exec sees MAP with News

Berger stresses cooperation in developing multi-access portal

PARIS — Alex Berger, prexy of Canal Numedia, a Web subsid of France’s Canal Plus, said News Corp. “would do well to cooperate with Canal Plus and Vivendi in developing the multi-access portal MAP.”

The French press reports that Berger also suggested that the new RTL Group form an alliance with Canal Numedia. Bertelsmann chief exec Thomas Middelhoff indicated earlier that the RTL Group, in which the company has a 30% stake, should cooperate with Canal Numedia.

Berger confirmed that Vivendi, which owns 49% of Canal Plus, is in talks with News Corp. on a possible alliance in its digital TV holding company Platco.
