Football Ligue 1 – TV: Canal+ and Amazon are negotiating, watch out for Ligue 1

After crying foul when the LFP sold 80% of Ligue 1 rights to Amazon, Canal+ is currently trying to reach an agreement with the American giant.

Last November, commenting in front of parliamentarians on the allocation of TV rights for 8 of the 10 matches of each Ligue 1 day to Prime Video, the boss of Canal+ had been accusatory and had clearly pointed the finger at the agreement between the Ligue of Professional Football and the American e-commerce giant.  » If we take all the matches, Canal+ pays 4.3 million euros per match where Amazon pays 600,000 euros per match, that is to say a ratio of 1 to 6. I remind you that Amazon has the 10 best Ligue 1 posters. And if we only take the exclusive matches, the ratio becomes 1 to 9. The discrimination is obvious. The real victim in this story is Canal+. It subsidizes the arrival of Amazon on the market, with the complicity of the LFP “, had launched a Maxime Saada, very unhappy and reassembled at the same time against Vincent Labrune, but also against the new broadcaster. However, Prime Video does the job well and on the side of the Canal+ group, we understood that the channel had succeeded in offering itself the rights to a large part of the Ligue 1 matches. After turning its back on Amazon, the encrypted channel suddenly returned to the negotiating table.

Canal + and Amazon are discussing again, Ligue 1 concerned?

Still claiming to want to be in the world’s top 5 for paid content in less than 10 years, Canal+ could not turn its back on the American giant, which in addition to Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 also broadcasts Roland-Garros, but also films, series and documentaries like the recent doc on Orelsan, a big audience success on this medium.  » We have resumed discussions with Amazon “, recognized Maxime Saada in the columns of Figaro, without specifying the scope of these negotiations. This obviously opens up prospects with the possibility that Ligue 1 can also be found on MyCanal with obviously an additional subscription, even if a possible ticket including all of Ligue 1 and even why not all of football, BeInSports already being on this media, subject to a big ticket.
