Orange cinéma séries to become OCS

Pascale Paoli-Lebailly | 04-09-2012

Launched four years ago on Orange TV in France, TV movie bouquet Orange cinéma series is to rebrand into OCS as of 22 September.

Available on digital platforms, the service’s five pay-TV channels will then be simply named OCS max, OCS happy, OCS choc, OCS novo and OCS géants.

In addition to Orange TV, the bouquet has also been carried on Canalsat since April 2012, after Canal+ Group took up a third stake. OCS has also been available in the overseas territories since last June, on Tahiti Nui Satellite and Parabole Réunion. The bouquet could also see its capital shares evolve in the coming months.

As part as the TPS/Canalsat merger case, the French Competition Authority has enjoined Canal+ to sell its 33 % shares into OCS.
