BFM TV, RMC Découverte and RMC Story are demanding €7 million from Free after the operator retransmitted the channels without permission.
Agreement has been reached between Altice and Iliad, parent company of Free, over the retransmission of BFMTV , RMC Découverte and RMC Story.
The founder of BFMTV has told a press conference that Orange should be free to resume the retransmission of his channels.
Orange has become the second major French operator to cease the retransmission of Altice-owned channels.
A week after Altice channels were removed from Free screens, the boss of Orange has said it’s a path his network could also find itself on.
French premium broadcaster Canal+ and CanalSat are losing subscribers at an increasing pace in France, according to BFM Business.
