TF1 kicks off new football channel

New channel expected to launch in August

TF1 and Mediapro have partnered to launch new football channel, Telefoot.

The channel will be available to viewers in France from August 2020, the date for when France’s Ligue 1 is due to begin again.

According to the two broadcasters, the new channel will offer 80 per cent of matches from Ligue 1, as well as eight matches a day from Ligue 2.

They added the new channel will use both broadcasters’ “editorial know how” and “technological expertise.”

The broadcasters have set a target of 3.5 million subscribers for the new channel that is expected to cost around €25 per month.

Mediapro is set to launch a subscription channel in France after paying €780 million per-season contract for eight Ligue 1 rights packages from 2020-21 to 2023-24.
