Canal+ Séries to debut in September

French pay TV operator Canal Plus is expected to add its new Canal+ Séries channel on September 21.

The channel will air US series two to seven days after they debut in the US, in the orginal version with subtitles. Weekends will see block runs of previous seasons of shows.

Canal+ Séries will be available in HD and content will also be made available for a limited period on catch-up TV.

The channel is expected to be offered to all Canal+ subscribers with no additional charge.

Content will include shows such as Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, Scandal and Revenge, along with Hannibal, The Americans and Banshee.

The channel also has second run rights to a number of HBO shows that will initially air on the Orange Cinéma Séries service, such as Girls, and will air original shows previously shown on Canal+ such as Les Revenants.
