French broadcaster Canal Plus has announced a deal that will let its pay-TV subscribers bundle Netflix as part of a new package. Customers will be able to add the package for a limited launch price of EUR 15.00 per month to Canal Plus' entry-level pay-TV tariff, which currently costs EUR 19.90/month. The service will become available in France from 15 October, and at a later date in Poland. Canal Plus will also give its subscribers the choice to add Netflix's plans to their existing pay-TV offer on the most recent STB models.
