Bidding for TF1 and M6 channels stalls - 27-August-2009, 11:57

It looks likely that CanalSat will continue to have exclusive carriage of the thematic pay channels from TF1 and M6. Bids from the main IPTV providers to gain access to these channels stalled at 25 million.

At the moment, the Canal+ group pays 60 million to distribute the channels Histoire, TV Breizh, Ushuaa TV, Odysse, Srie Club and Eurosport on an exclsuive basis to its 4.5 million subscribers, according to a report in Le Figaro.

Should Canal lose its exclusivity on these channels, the platform is willing to pay only 25 million.

The IPTV providers, including Orange, Free and Neuf, are also willing to pay 25 million, which leaves TF1 and M6 10 million short on an annual basis. The total number of subscribers of the combined IPTV services is believed to be around 500,000 homes.

Both TF1 and M6 have until September 15 to renew their exclusive contract with the Canal group.
