Canal+ Subscribers in France to Get Full Access to Apple TV+ From April 20

Apple TV+ will be made available to every Canal+ subscriber in France at no extra cost from April 20, Apple has announced.

The move means millions of Canal+ customers will soon be able to access TV+ content directly on their existing set-top box – no separate app or subscription necessary.

"I've long admired Canal+ and their commitment to high-quality programming, so we couldn't be more excited to work with them to bring the award-winning films and series of Apple TV+ into even more homes across France," said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Services. "This is an incredible offering for Canal+ customers. And through shows like Liaison and Drops of God, we remain committed to the country's creative industries and shining a spotlight on many of its best writers, directors, actors, and artists."

"For the first time in its history, the CANAL+ Group has chosen to offer access to content from a partner platform to all of its subscribers in France," said Maxime Saada, chairman and CEO of CANAL+ Group. "With this historic partnership, we are consolidating both our business as an aggregator, through carrying Apple TV+, and our business as a publisher, with the broadcasting of select Apple Original series on our CANAL+ channel, to the delight of our subscribers."

This is the second time Apple has joined forces with Canal+ to increase its presence in French homes. In May 2018, Apple partnered with the premium TV company to allow subscribers in France to opt to receive an Apple TV 4K on a rental basis in lieu of a traditional cable box.

I wish the partnership was also the other way round as well; that tv+ subscribers have access to Canal+ for free

I wonder how many folks are actually paying for a stand-alone Apple TV+ subscription? As in, not part of Apple One, not part of a free trial, not part of the Apple Music student bundle with free Apple TV, not part of an offer from a mobile phone network.

Do we have any figures for the revenue Apple TV+ generates?

Always seems like a prestige thing rather than a profit thing: that apple wants to be seen to be in TV because prestige TV has been a big thing for the past few years.

Just think what Apple could have done if they had ploughed the same money into their own high end gaming studio.
