Telefonica phases out Canal+ trademark, renames channels

Monday 1 August 2016 | 13:59 CET | News
Telefonica has phased out the Canal+ logo and trademark in Spain, renaming its Canal+ Estrenos, Canal+ Series, Canal+ Xtra and Canal+ Futbol thematic channels Movistar Estrenos, Movistar Series, Movistar Xtra and Movistar Futbol. The DCine Espanol channel will now be called Movistar Cine N, while the Canal+ Liga channel will be renamed Bein La Liga when it launches later this month. The operator's move, which confirms an earlier report, comes after it decided to unify its brand and visual identity around a year after launching the Movistar+ pay-TV platform following the takeover of Digital+.
