Orange and Canal+ sign agreement to broadcast channels via Astra satellite

Orange, a brand of France Telecom, and Canal+ Group have signed a multi-annual agreement to allow Orange triple play customers who are not eligible for TV by ADSL to subscribe to Canal+ and/or Canalsat, as well as Foot+.

By CBR Staff Writer

Via Astra satellite, in 2009, Orange triple play customers with satellite TV are expected to be able to receive these offers directly on a single ADSL/satellite hybrid set-top box provided by Orange.

A technical cooperation agreement between Orange and Canal+ Group is expected to allow both partners to use the same satellite resources. To broadcast its own channels, Orange also signed an agreement with SES Astra. The service that Orange TV is offering its triple play customers via the Astra satellite will thus be close to that available via ADSL.

As well as the bouquet of Orange TV channels and catch-up services, all Orange triple play subscribers to Canal+ and Canalsat bouquets will now be able to access Canal+ catch-up on demand and Canalsat on demand. These services, included in the subscription to Canal+ or Canalsat channels and already accessible via PC, will be available in 2009 directly on TV via the decoder supplied by Orange.
