May 11, 2010
France's football league, the LFP, plans to launch its own TV channel president FrÃ©dÃ©ric Thiriez has confirmed. Thiriez said they were talking with service providers including Numericable, SFR and Orange and also intend to see football on pay DTT.
Initially the channel will show League 2 games, but Thiriez said the LFP's ambition was to create a channel that merited retaining the rights to League 1 matches when its current contract with Canal Plus and Orange expires in two years.
