TF1 and M6 appeal against Canal Plus FTA acquisitions

French broadcasters TF1 and M6 have filed an appeal against the competition authority’s approval of Canal Plus’s acquisition of free-to-air channels Direct 8 and Direct Star with the country’s Conseil d’État.

According to a report by Le Point, the two commercial broadcasters are arguing that the competition regulator did not place sufficiently strong conditions on Canal Plus ahead of granting approval of the deal.
