The group Spanish audiovisual Mediapro will broadcast most of the matches of League 1 for the next 4 years as of next month. In addition, the Spanish-speaking group has also purchased the rights to co-distribute, by the matches of the champions League and the Europa League alongside RMC Sport, for this season. Patrick Drahi, chairman of Altice, said that the goal is to reduce the expenditures in the TV rights.
This is why the group Mediapro takes the opportunity to rush on the occasion. After having bought the Premiere League, Altice decides to withdraw gradually from the world of football, while continuing to use this sport as a major argument to attract more customers in its telecom operator SFR. For their part, the teams with Mediapro, directed by Jaume Roures, make every effort to become this season the key player for the football fans.
A challenge complicated.
Since last June, TF1 and Mediapro are working hand in hand to create a new French chain, which will be called Téléfoot, such as the iconic magazine Sunday broadcast over the largest chain in Europe. The purpose of Mediapro is to disseminate more matches of the championships, all of the posters in europe. Of the month until 2021, as a result, Canal+ and BeIN will return to the owner of the european competitions.
In France, to enjoy the League 1, you need to be subscribed to Téléfoot for 25,99 euros per month. For the pack including the European cups, it will be 29,99 euros. In order to recoup its heavy investment, Mediapro said that it is necessary that 4 million households opt for a subscription to 25,99€. In order to distribute its offerings, Mediapro has consulted various operators requesting them 100 million euros in guarantees for the dissemination of programs of Téléfoot. The Spanish group has therefore opened discussions with SFR, which does not seem excited by the proposal and would prefer to simply share her earnings with Mediapro. Furthermore, negotiations have also been launched with Orange and Bouygues Telecom, which is the reminder belongs to the same industrial group as TF1.
