The five-channel bouquet Orange Cinéma Séries will launch on Canalsat on April 5.

As a stand-alone option, a subscription will cost €12 a monnth, but the bouquet will also be included in the platform’s top-tier package Tout Canalsat. A combined subscription to Ciné+ and Orange Cinema Séries will be available for €15.

Orange Cinéma Séries is a bouquet of dedicated movie channels operated by France Telecom. The five channels launched on November 13, 2008 as a part of the company’s direct-to-home satellite service Orange TV.

The five channels are: Orange Cinemax (blockbusters); Orange Cinehappy (family films); Orange Cinechoc (action films); Orange Cinenovo (independent and art house films) and Orange Cinegeants (classic films).

The suite also includes an on-demand service. Content is provided by exclusive contracts with Warner Bros., HBO, MGM and Fidelity, as well as non-exclusive contracts with Gaumont, SND, BAC and Wild Side.
