January 20, 2021
By Chris Forrester
Canal+ has launched a sale on French retailer Veepee.fr which specialises in flash sales of – often – designer merchandise at significant discounts. It has more than 72 million users.
Veepee is offering new or returning subscribers deeply discounted access to Canal+. The site is offering two “exclusive” offers either for the stand-alone Canal+ channel or a much wider bundle of Canal+ channels (including Cinema, Series, Sport, Family, etc).
Offer 1: €9 per month (normal price €20.99) for 2 years to have access to the Canal+ channel on TV and digital screens. The channel broadcast more than 300 exclusive movies per year.
Offer 2: €14 per month (normal price €35.99) for 2 years to have access to the Canal+ Channel but also various Canal+ channels including Canal+Cinema, Sport, Series, family, premier league etc.
New subscribers taking up one or other of the offers will also gain access to online digital entertainment including replay access.
Investment bank Exane/BNPP, in a note to clients, says that Canal+ France has taken various steps in recent quarters to restart growth in the subs base after a period of weakness with notably 1) SVOD offer on series, 2) deals with Netflix, Disney+ and 3) a secured deal with beIN on sport rights.
