All Apple TV offered on Canal, and in HDR Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on myCanal

As a reminder, yesterday was the scene of an announcement as surprising as it was exciting with huge news for Canal+ subscribers and fans of Apple TV+ series (Ted Lasso, WeCrashed, etc.). All Apple TV+ is coming to Canal+ for free. We repeat it, gra-tui-te-ment.

The boss of Canal+ confirmed it himself on Twitter: “Today, Canal+ signed a historic, multi-year agreement with Apple. From April 20, all Canal+ subscribers will have access to AppleTV+ content at no additional cost and directly in myCanal”.

Old and new Canal+ subscribers

The Canal+ press release that followed confirmed and specified that new Canal+ subscribers would also be affected: “All new Canal+ subscribers will also benefit from Apple TV+ included in their offer, as of their subscription. All Apple TV+ content can be viewed directly on myCanal and in the Canal+ universe of partner decoders and Canal+ decoders”.

Good pick

Specifically, it's free access to the new film Ghosted with Chris Evans and Ana de Armas (April 21), to the Franco-Japanese series The Drops of God inspired by the hit manga (April 21), to Silo , science fiction series with Rebecca Ferguson adapted from Hugh Howey's dystopian trilogy (May 5). And of course Apple cult programs like Ted Lasso, WeCrashed, The Morning Show, Tehran, Liaison, See, Severance, For All Mankind, Foundation. And feature films: Coda, Greyhound, Finch, Luck, Causeway, Emancipation, Tetris…

HDR Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos via the myCanal app

As for the questions we asked ourselves yesterday about the nature of Apple TV+ content, we received an answer from Canal+. Via myCanal, on compatible hardware, Apple TV+ content will be available in HDR Dolby Vision if offered with this technology. Ditto for Dolby Atmos tracks but only in VO. On the other hand, no HDR Dolby Vision or even HDR10 on G5 / GT6 decoders and on a large majority of internet boxes. HDR10 will be on the G9 decoder.
