Eurosport has disappeared from the Numericable network following last week’s court decision that allows the Discovery-owned network to be restricted to the Canalsat package.
French language website Generation Cable said Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 were no longer available to subscribers of Numericable or the SFR fibre package.
It’s expected that other channels will disappear from Numericable in the next few weeks.
In order to watch the popular French sports network, viewers need a €25 a month subscription to Canalsat, though inconveniently this isn’t available over SFR.
Last week Numericable and SFR had an appeal against the Competition Authority’s ruling in favour of Canal’s exclusive agreements rejected.
