Canal loses House of Cards, now only on Netflix France

Friday 4 March 2016 | 10:57 CET | News
After broadcasting the first three seasons of hit US politics drama House of Cards, French pay TV group Canal Plus will not air the fourth, writes Satellitax. The carriage agreement between Canal Plus and the show's producer, Netflix, was reportedly only for 3 years. The fourth season is expected to only be available in France on Netflix. In a bid to fight online video piracy, Canal Plus airs hit US shows 24 hours after they are shown in their home market. Netflix had an estimated 750,000 subscribers in France in August 2015, according to UK market researcher Future Source Consulting.
