Canal Plus and RMC Sport to co-distribute English Premier League matches – report

Tuesday 15 January 2019 | 17:39 CET | News
Canal Plus has accepted to share part of the rights to English Premier League football matches with Altice France, according to information gathered by L'Equipe. The broadcaster has secured exclusive rights to the Premier League championship from 2019, taking them back from Altice's SFR subsidiary, which acquired the past three seasons at the end of 2015. However, subscribers to Altice France's RMC Sport channels could continue to have access to English football matches for three more seasons if a co-distribution agreement with Canal Plus is finalised.
