CanalSat offers basic on-demand

CanalSatellite, the French digital platform operator, has launched an online on-demand service for its basic channel packages.

Available through PC, and soon via satellite and ADSL, the service allows viewers to watch content when they want over a one-month period after programmes are broadcast.

Concerned channels are CineCinema, Plančte, Disney Channel, Playhouse Disney, Canal J, Filles TV, Tiji, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, TCM and Voyage. But Canal adds it will progressively increase the number of channels.

Offered since last March, the Canal+ sister service (Canal+ a la Demande) has already registered 1 million views and is used by close to 60% of its subscribers.
