The Canal+ Group is launching an OTT drama service – c+SSéries – available from March 12th, offering what it says is thousands of hours of shows, including its Original Commissions and major international series for €6.99 a month.
International series available at launch include Engrenages, Hippocrate, Versailles, Platane, Guyane, and in due course Vernon Subutex, as well as future productions.
The whole of the C+ Group expertise in the selection of the best international series can be seen across exclusive titles such as Killing Eve, L’amie Prodigieuse or Catastrophe. At launch, c+ Séries will exclusively offer Deadly Class, followed by the new season of Gomorra.
The offer will also equally include exclusive recent productions:
From SHOWTIME (Billions, SMILF, etc.); FX (Pose, What We Do In The Shadow, etc.) and StudioCanal (The Lawyer, Moscou Noir, etc.), as well as the entirety of cul series such as The Americans, Sons Of Anarchy, 24h Chrono, Dexter, X-Files, etc.
c+ Séries is available subscription-free and doesn’t require a prior subscription to C+L packages. A single subscription allows up to four simultaneous streams with a scalable price to promote sharing.
c+ Séries is part of the transformation of the Group’s offerings which has seen an access price reduced to less than €20 euros per month, commitment-free subscriptions and greater freedom in the choice of its thematic channels.
“This transformation is illustrated above all with the myC+L app popularised by users. myC+L is a unique platform with live or on demand, sports, French and Hollywood cinema within a few months after theatrical release; series; documentaries, etcetera. In total, thousands of hours of programmes from the largest content producers, to consume anywhere and anytime. c+SÉRIES is a new building block that adds to our digital offer.”
“c+ Séries was conceived to give the taste of C+ to younger audiences through one of its most recognised themes, namely drama series,” explained Frank Cadoret, Deputy CEO of the C+ Group. “For €6.99 per month, subscribers will have access to the best of C+ series, original productions with nuggets unearthed by our experts, right through to major American series. With the general premium C+ channel costing less than €20, including access to the myC+L streaming platform and now a dedicated drama offer, we are totally in tune with the new aspirations of the public.”
The launch of c+ Séries will be accompanied by an advertising campaign encouraging subscribers to share their passwords.
