Canal+ is in advanced talks with Disney for the exclusive distribution of new streaming service Disney+.
The move would shut out rivals Altice/SFR, Orange and Free.
According to Letter A, the House of Mouse wants to launch its Netflix buster “at the earliest in spring 2020”.
Vivendi subsidiary Canal has been a long-time partner of Disney and already carries its premium channels.
Disney+ would be offered as both a paid option and bundled in offers with the encypted channel, giving subscribers the option of taking the new service for just a few additional Euros a month.
This month Canal has begun to market Netflix to subscribers to its Cine/Series package.
