SFR and Orange mull deal over Altice Studio and OCS – report

Monday 4 June 2018 | 12:34 CET | News
SFR and Orange are reportedly discussing a deal under which the distribution rights held by Altice's content division, Altice Studio, would pass to OCS, reports Les Echos quoting unnamed sources. The aim of the negotiations, first uncovered by Le Figaro, would be to strengthen OCS's content portfolio in France with the assimilation of Altice Studio's exclusive distribution rights, including those secured in December 2016 from NBCUniversal and Discovery. In return, Altice would take a minority stake in OCS, currently controlled by Orange with a 33 percent participation by Canal Plus.
