Canal+ has confirmed to RapidTV News that it will drop NBC Universal’s channels 13ème Rue HD, Syfy HD and E! Entertainment from Canalsat DTH and IPTV offer in both France and Switzerland.
It is widely thought that the decision was made after a failure to meet deadlines on current carriage negotiations. The development of its HD offer is a priority for the Canal+ Group.
That said, the SD versions of 13ème Rue and Syfy SD will continue being carried in exclusivity on the platform.
