French court orders Orange to pay EUR 3.6 mln to Mediapro in contract dispute

Wednesday 9 June 2021 | 08:39 CET | News
The Paris commercial court has ruled in favour of Mediapro in a case brought by the Spanish group against French operator Orange. The latter has been ordered to pay a sum of EUR 3.6 million, which Mediapro claimed was owed to its subsidiary Mediapro Sport France under the distribution contract for the Telefoot channel signed in September 2020. The amount in question corresponds to the subscription fees collected by Orange from customers of its IPTV platform who subscribed to Telefoot during the 2020/2021 season.
