Altice is to shutter its RMC Sports News channel with effect from June 2.
The channel has effectively been silent since the start of the corona crisis, its demise being signalled by Canal+, which stated on its website that RMC Sports News would no longer be available in its packages from Friday week.
Altice has not made an official statement on the channel’s future.
The unions are said to be furious over finding out about the channel’s future from a third party.
RMC Sport News was launched in summer 2016 under the name of BFM Sport, changing its name two years later on the launch of the RMC Sport bouquet.
