Published February 15, 2013
WALKING ON WATER: LE NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR's Jérôme Lefilliâtre opined Canal+ is "walking on water." Not long after renewing its rights for the Premier League, the pay-TV channel has now "acquired a prestigious victory by nabbing the F1 rights." It is another "significant investment" for the group, which will pay between €150-200M ($200-267M) for the EPL rights and already spends €420M ($560) "a season for French football" (LE NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR, 2/14).
