What will it change for you?

Thunderbolt in the world of sport. The two former enemy brothers, Canal + and BeIN Sports will soon ally. Vivendi, parent company of the encrypted chain, announced Thursday that it would be able to conclude an exclusive distribution agreement of the BeIN Sports channels in France. Vivendi’s supervisory board gave the green light to the executive board.

Concretely, this does not necessarily mean that you will have to subscribe to Canal + or Canalsat to access the Qatari sports channel in France. This rapprochement will allow “all customers of the two companies to have a complete offer,” says Vivendi. Canal + “could cut new cheaper and more targeted new packages, mixing CanalSat channels and channels: bein could therefore be included in one or more of these bouquets, at a price between 13 and 40 euros per month”, precise The world.

“”Like a British sky, Canal+ could ultimately launch new ‘thematic’ packs specially designed for sports fans “, abounds the echoes. “There will remain an offer in BeIN Sports alone for thirteen euros per month,” said a source close to the dossier in the evening daily. We do not yet know, on the other hand, what will happen to Bein Sports Connect, the offer which allows you to subscribe to visualize the group’s channels on a computer, a tablet or a smartphone.

What are the rights that each operator have?

Currently the subscription to Bein Sports costs only 13 euros per month, against 39.90 euros per month for the Canal + bouquet (excluding promotions). An offer that gives access to half of the Champions League, eight Ligue 1 games a day, at the Spanish football, Italy, Germany, NBA, Wimbledon and Full of the European Rugby Cup. This plethoric offer has appealed for the moment 2.5 million people. The BeIN Sports group targets 3 million subscribers on the horizon of Euro 2016. The Qatari group has, in fact, the entire competition. At the same time, Canal + only holds half of the Champions League (against all of 2012) and the two best games in the French championship. The Premiere League, for its part, was bought by Altice, the group of Patrick Drahi, for the next three years. From 2016, all the matches of the English championship should therefore be broadcast on my sport channel.

When is the VA-Being agreement put in place?

Not immediately! The agreement between beIN SPORTS and Canal + must first be studied meticulously by the Competition Authority. The organization must first launch a “market test” whose result will be known within a month, before instructing the file. What should take several weeks. Canal + will then try to demonstrate to the wise men that market conditions have radically changed since the TPS-Canalsat merger in 2006. The chain should thus recall that new players have appeared on the sports rights in recent years, in particular telephone operators or international groups like the American Discovery. Not to mention that Canal+ must also face increased competition on its other historic pillar, films and series, with the arrival of Netflix and Amazon projects.
