Canal Plus to restore access to TF1 TV channels for all customers

Monday 12 March 2018 | 11:25 CET | News
Canal Plus said that access to TF1's five television channels would soon be restored for customers using broadband reception, and not just for those receiving the channels over satellite. This latest announcement follows the intervention last week of French broadcast authority CSA and the minister of culture, Francoise Nyssen, in defence of TV viewers using the TNT Sat platform.
