Tailor-made TV Bricks

For both new and existing operators preferring to outsource the building and managing of its TV content offering, M7 offers so-called TV Bricks: full service content solutions, leveraging its excellent and long-standing agreements with all key content providers, both locally and internationally, hence building upon attractive economies of scale.

Depending on the size and requirements of the provider, such TV Bricks may consist of an entry standard offering of all key local channels and a bouquet of thematic channels, or an enriched version also containing premium content services – derived from either Canal+ produced and owned libraries of films, series or channels or other international studios.

Moreover, Canal+ builds complete new channels in various genres, and where relevant in partnership with telecommunications operators.
