Canal Plus' MyCanal service to adopt pay-per-view VoD model

Friday 10 November 2017 | 10:28 CET | News
Canal Plus' MyCanal VoD service is to open a new revenue stream by selling TV series and movies on a pay-per-view basis, reports Les Echos quoting the company's distribution director, Frank Cadoret. The launch, expected in the first quarter of 2018, represents a change in strategy for the platform, which has so far protected the traditional subscription contract model, only recently offering subscriptions without minimum commitment. Pay-per-view will also soon be trialled for sports events to test the appetite among customers, said Cadoret.
