Business Model

The primary source of revenue is subscription fees from its pay-TV services and streaming platform, myCANAL. Viewers pay monthly or annual fees to access a range of premium content. Advertising also plays a significant role, with income from commercials aired on TV and digital ads on their online platforms.

Content distribution and licensing are crucial too. Canal+ sells broadcasting rights for its original shows and acquired content to other networks and streaming services, both locally and internationally. They also enter into distribution deals for major events and popular programs.

Partnerships and co-productions with other companies help share production costs and profits, while telecom partnerships bundle Canal+ channels with internet services.

Additionally, Canal+ earns from merchandise related to its shows and ancillary services like on-demand rentals and event ticketing, diversifying its revenue sources and ensuring financial stability.
