Al Jazeera’s new French sports channels will be carried by DTH service CanalSat after the two parties struck a deal.
Following weeks of negotiations, CanalSat is now offering beIN Sport 1, which launched on June 1, and beIN Sport 2 will be available next month. The channels will cost €11 per month.
Al Jazeera launched the channels after it won the rights to broadcast French Ligue 1 and Champions League football. Last month, police raided the offices of Charles Biétry, the head of beIN Sport, following a complaint by Canal Plus that the broadcaster had engaged in malpractices in poaching Canal Plus staff.
