French pay-television broadcaster Canal Plus is set to broadcast the Premier League exclusively after opting against a sublicensing of rights ahead of this weekend’s opening fixtures of the new season.

The Vivendi-owned broadcaster sold on non-exclusive rights to subscription broadcaster RMC Sport during the 2019-22 cycle. Canal Plus initially secured the rights in a deal worth just over €90m ($92m) per year.
