Netflix has been dominating other SVoD platforms for a long time, but the riposte is getting ready. France Télévisions, M6 and TF1 have joined forces to create Salto, but at present the site does not offer any content and the ambitions around this project do not seem very big at the moment.
Most notably, Disney + will be offering Star Wars and Marvel series in addition to all of Disney's animated feature films. And in this particular context, what about Canal +? The group has already announced that it has thrown in the towel for its CanalPlay service, preferring to bet on myCanal.
It is therefore no surprise that we learn the effective disappearance of CanalPlay tomorrow, Tuesday, March 12, 2019. The SVoD platform will be replaced by a new service: Canal + Series.
Canal + Series will be available via the myCanal application from the "Subscribe" tab, but also from the mycanal.fr website or from your box.
MyCANAL allows you to access all Canal + and Canalsat channels on your smartphone or tablet. Follow them live or replay them …

130 series and no movies
The Canal + Series service will offer a rich catalog of 130 series including Black Baron, Gears, Hippocrates and Gomorra. But what happens to movies? Canal + considers that it is useless to invest in the broadcasting of films in SVoD because of the chronology of the media in force in France.
Some will also note that Canal + Séries is also a channel of the TV group. Launched in 2013, it is doomed to disappear, but we do not know exactly when.
Price and availability
As we said above, the new Canal + Series service will be available as of March 12th. To enjoy it, it will take 6.99 euros per month for a user. This monthly payment is 9.99 euros for two users and 11.99 euros for 4 users.
