Technology & Convergence

Francophone Pay TV operator Canal Plus (Canal+) has announced the launch of a major innovation on the African continent. Jean-Noël Tronc, PDG of Canal Overseas Africa, which has been present in Africa for over 15 years, explained that PVR (Personal Video Recorder) allows Canalsat Horizons subscribers to better « control » their programmes.

Viewers will be able to put programmes on hold - freezing it - and record up to 120 hours while watching other programmes. Thus, subscribers will be able to build and maintain a whole programmes library. Canalsat Horizons bouquet is broadcast in more than 20 African countries.
