The company fought off competition from French pay TV operator Canal Plus to win the package of six weekly matches that they will offer on a pay-per-view basis. It was also awarded the rights to a weekly magazine programme. In addition to the two matches per week package it had already acquired, the broadcaster will air a total of eight matches from France’s top football league each week.
The latest deal with the Ligue de Football Professional makes Al Jazeera a prominent player in the French football rights market. It also holds international rights to Ligue 1 and the majority of French broadcast rights to the UEFA Champions League until 2015.
