Host Broadcast Services, the Infront-owned broadcast production entity, is said to be close to being appointed to a host broadcast contract for French football matches shown by Amazon, the online retail giant that recently secured rights to Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 from 2021-22 to 2023-24.

Having acquired the rights previously held by Spanish agency and production group Mediapro, Amazon is thought to have set aside €25m ($30m) per year in production costs to be paid to the French Professional Football League (LFP) and HBS has now been recruited as host broadcaster, according to L'Équipe.
