Digital Plus rebrands as Canal Plus
September 29, 2011
From David del Valle in Madrid
Spain’s largest pay-TV platform, Digital Plus, is changing its name and from mid-October will use the brand Canal Plus. The current channel Canal Plus will be branded as Canal Plus 1 to avoid misunderstanding. So, the Canal Plus family of channels will be named: Canal + 1, Canal+ Dos, Canal+ Acción, Canal+ Acción… 30, Canal+ Acción HD, Canal+ Comedia, Canal+ Comedia HD, Canal+ DCine, Canal+ Deportes, Canal+ Deportes HD, Canal+ Deportes 2 HD, Canal+ Fútbol, Canal+ Fútbol HD, Canal+ Golf, Canal+ Liga, Canal+ Liga HD, Canal+ Liga 2, Canal+ Toros, Canal+ Xtra and Canal+ Xtra HD.
This is the second time the company has changed the name of its DTH platform. In 2003, the digital merger between Canal Satelite Digital and Via Digital, gave rise to Digital Plus, now Canal Plus.
Also, the digital platform, now called Canal Plus, will make its pay-TV service available through PLC (Power Line Communications) following an agreement with Devolo.
