France’s Canal Plus and The Walt Disney Company have pacted to offer Disney movies and TV shows on Canal’s VOD service Canalplay Infinity. The paid subscription service will now offer some 100 film titles from Disney including the Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure films, among others. Full seasons of ABC TV shows like Lost, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives will also be available. The 9.99 euros per month unlimited service was launched in November in a burgeoning and competitive market that includes Allociné’s iCinema platform and Wild Bunch’s FilmoTV. Netflix, for the moment however, is not a player in France.
