17h22: Addition was rejected by François Pesenti
The future Médiapro channel, the new broadcaster of the Ligue 1 from 2020, is taking shape. We already knew that the Spanish group did not count
sublicense some of its rights to other channels, and the price of the subscription would be around
25 euros per month. We now know the name of the person who will be responsible for the launch
the location of the teamby François Pesenti.
He has been with RMC Sports Management for over 17 years. His departure should be official on Monday. Jaume Roures, head of Mediapro, said the station's future director will be known in early February and "said he was a Frenchman and a connoisseur of the media," the newspaper said.
Pesanti denies "categorically"
Mediapro, which tore the rights of Ligue 1 for almost 800 million euros at the expense of Canal +, targets 3.5 million subscribers. A figure representing the equilibrium threshold. "And with 4 million we would be profitable," said Roures in November. The station offers "uninterrupted programming seven days a week, 24 hours a day".
Shortly after the publication of this information, François Pesenti published a disclaimer on his Twitter account. "I categorically reject any contact or agreement with Mediapro," wrote the leader, who says he is "horrified."
I generally reject any contact or agreement with Mediapro. I am appalled that a press organ of the supposed quality of the team could publish such false information. I reserve the possibility of an action.
