French Open domestic rights secured by France Télévisions, Eurosport

French public-service broadcaster France Télévisions has extended a rights deal for the French Open and sublicensed rights for the tennis tournament to the Eurosport France national arm of the international sports broadcaster.

France Télévisions and Eurosport France will continue to show live coverage of the next five editions of the tournament, from 2014 to 2018.

France Télévisions acquired the rights from the Fédération Française de Tennis, the sport’s national governing body and the operator of the tournament. The rights cover all media platforms.

The international Eurosport broadcast service already had pan-European rights for the tournament through to 2021, excluding the French market. France Télévisions has shown the French Open since 1987.
