Since 2012, we have had to take out a lot of money to follow Olympique de Marseille. Between Canal +, BeIN Sports, AmazonPrime or RMC Sport… This is a nice sum shared by the broadcasters. Today, even the World Cup is paying off in France. A recent phenomenon in the history of the World Cup broadcast on French television.
Take the 2010 World Cup for example. She was on public service, France Televisions broadcast 34 matches live, including half of the round of 16 and quarter-finals. TF1 also had its share of the cake by broadcasting 27 matches with all the matches of the blues, the semi-finals and the final, Canal + had all the matches and broadcast 37 matches live. Twelve years later, it is no longer the same case. BeIN Sportsyou arrived, Canal+ not here anymore, France Televisions no more.
Today, the Qatari channel takes over from the World Cup in Brazil. It is responsible for broadcasting the entire competition with quasi-exclusivity for the group stages. TF1 is left with “only” the matches of the French team and the best matches of the group stages. The private channel keeps the broadcast of the 5 most beautiful posters of the eighth and the 3 best quarter-finals as well as the last four of the competition with the final and the match for third place.
Concretely, we can see 28 matches out of 64 for free, is it only in France where you can to see all the matches for which you have to pay? Yes, well almost. As our colleagues fromRMCour Spanish, German, Belgian and Swiss neighbors can follow the World Cup without having to add anything. French supporters must pay 15 euros per month. The partially paid World Cup would therefore typically be French.
