French pay-TV operator Canal+ Group, a leading provider of premium channels, is partnering with quad-play operator Orange to launch its latest set-top box with a complete Ultra-HD offering including:

  • Live events: Top rugby and football matches with a new UHD experience
  • Original productions in UHD
  • A selection of UHD movies, series and documentaries

Content will be available live on Canal+ and Canal+ On demand

The service will be available for Canal+ subscribers equipped with an UltraHD/4K set via Orange Fibre.

The next live event will be the final of France’s Top14 rugby tournament live in Barcelona.

Canal + says the initiative maintains its pioneering role in technological innovation, and its entry into Ultra High Definition.
