French pay TV group Canal Plus has announced a switchover from analogue to digital via an offer available to subscribers immediately.
All new subscribers to the group’s analogue service will now have access to Canal Plus Cinema and Canal Plus Sport, plus HD viewing and all 18 channels on the country’s DTT platform via a special decoder. The “all access” offer will be cheaper for consumers than the group’s current rate for access to Canal Plus’ main network in analogue.
Canal Plus plans to see all of its subscribers shift completely from analogue to digital viewing by the end of 2010. In addition to the DTT platform, Canal Plus group’s networks remain available via cable, satellite and ADSL.
