An exorbitant price considered to watch Ligue 1

An exorbitant price considered to watch Ligue 1

The hypothesis of a channel dedicated to Ligue 1 gaining depth in recent days, the cost for the viewer promises to be steep. The amount advanced turns out to be prohibitive.

Inflation has a good back. The general trend is increasing, so the TV subscription to follow the
Ligue
1
will obviously not escape the rule. Two months before the resumption of the championship, the Professional Football League (LFP) has still not sealed a broadcasting agreement
for rights running from 2024 to 2029. Also the creation of a channel dedicated 100% to L1 seems favored today.

If beIN Sports still holds the rope to bet most of the vital windfall expected by French football, the reluctance of Canal + to ensure distribution makes the potential deal completely obsolete. To the point of pushing the LFP to consider new ramifications, via internet access providers and even if it means relaunching Amazon and DAZN, hitherto excluded for lack of investment resources, in the race.

Up to 870 million euros expected for a season

According to L’Equipe, the option of the new channel could allow the League to obtain the desired envelope. Or at least 700 million euros per year over the next five seasons. The ideal deal would provide for increasing revenues: from 540 million euros in the first year to 870 million in the fifth. Time for the newly created entity to find its economic model and recoup its costs.

All this naturally cannot be without consequences for the consumer, who will have to pay 25 euros per month (250 euros per year) to watch the 34 days of Ligue 1 on their screen starting next season. This year to follow eight of the nine posters on the program for a championship lift, a subscription at 99 euros per year on Amazon Prime was enough. It was certainly necessary to add 29.99 euros per month to add the meeting broadcast exclusively by the Canal+ group on Saturday evening. But for a complete subscription including Eurosport and beIN Sports, therefore access to the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga.
