Warner inks pay TV deal with Canal Plus Warner Bros. Entertainment has signed a new pay TV deal with French media giant Canal Plus that will give Canal's subscribers access to new films and also catalog titles via their TVs, mobile device or gaming console.
The new deal covers all of Canal's channels including Canal+, CINE+, Comedie+ and Jimmy, and each of their "catch-up" on-demand services.

"We are proud to give our subscribers access to the films of one of the most prestigious American studios," says Canal Plus deputy general director Rodolphe Belmer.

Adds Warner Bros. International Television president Jeffrey Schlesinger: "Canal Plus has always had a deep appreciation of Warner's productions and successful cinematographic legacy. We are delighted with our return to Canal Plus in 2013."

Canal Plus has 13 million subscribers, each of who will get access to top movies like Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: trilogy, Argo, The Great Gatsby and The Hangover III, all 10 months after theatrical release.

Ugggh...the whole point of Canal+ is to avoid movies like The Hangover III.
