Canal+ subscribers in France and other territories can now access Apple TV+ without any extra charges. This move comes after Canal+ announced a deal with Apple last week, allowing its subscribers to watch Apple’s original TV shows and movies directly through the myCANAL app.
Canal+ is a prominent pay-TV provider in France, and this partnership with Apple gives their subscribers access to even more content, boosting their competitiveness against rivals such as Netflix and other streaming services in the region. For Apple, the partnership provides an opportunity to expand its reach in the French market, with an estimated 9 million Canal+ customers now able to watch Apple TV+ without any additional fees.
It’s worth noting that Canal+ subscribers will not be accessing Apple TV+ through Apple’s app, but rather through the myCANAL app. The rollout of this integration began on April 20, with approximately 50 Apple TV+ titles already available through the Canal+ service. The remaining catalog of Apple TV+ content is set to appear on Canal+ in the coming weeks.
Additionally, Canal+ will be airing select Apple TV+ content on its broadcast channel, starting with the popular series The Morning Show.

This deal is a significant development for both companies, as Canal+ can offer more value to its subscribers, while Apple can expand its reach in the French market. With the ongoing competition in the streaming industry, partnerships like these will be crucial in determining which services emerge as the top players.
