Canal+ obient exclusive Disney+

The group Channel has the big announcement this weekend in an interview with the newspaper Les Echos : a premonition of the past several months, this merger between Canal+ and Disney+ is a “new major step in the transformation of the Channel model+” if believed by Maxime Saada, chairman of the management board of Canal+. Indeed, the platform should be accessible only on Canal+ in the first time, this last also being the single point of contact of the other operators.
