Nc+ faces viewer criticism for loss of sports rights

Tuesday 18 August 2015 | 10:29 CET | News
Subscribers of the channel Canal+ are critical of the channel's loss of the rights for three out of five football leagues, reports Media2.pl. In the 20-year history of operation of the channel in Poland, this year seems to be the weakest. Currently, the channel has the exclusive rights for the Champions League and also holds the rights for the UK league and Ekstraklasa. However, the sports offering is ever narrower. Over the past months the channel lost the rights to the Italian and French leagues and the Handball Champions League.
