Manuel Alduy, the head of Canal OTT at French pay TV broadcaster Canal+ has left his post, according to local reports.
Alduy’s sphere of responsibility at Canal+ encompassed SVoD sevie Canalplay and mobile TV app-based service MyCanal. He was one of the few remaining members of the former leadership team at the broadcaster that included the now departed cinema chief Nathalie Coste-Cerdan and Canalsat chief Alice Holzman.
As such his departure is being seen as part of the reset of the pay TV service initiated by Vivendi chief Vincent Bolloré. News of Alduy’s departure was initially reported by film industry title Le Film Français.
Alduy joined Canal+ as director of strategy and development for thematic channels in 2001, and became head of movie acquisitions in 2005 and head of cinema for Canal+ in 2008 before taking over as chief of Canal OTT in 2014.
His most recent new responsibility was as chief of mobile offering Studio+ alongside producer Gilles Gallud.
