Subscribers will be able to watch the matches in Ultra HD, with both the Friday and Sunday evening fixtures broadcast on the TELEFOOT 4K channel on each Championship weekend.
The TELEFOOT channel will be available as an option for eligible Freebox subscribers, on a commitment or no-commitment basis, and a combined NETFLIX + TELEFOOT package will also be offered.
By proposing TELEFOOT to its Freebox subscribers, Free is giving the channel a very wide viewing audience while promoting its exceptional program line-up, which notably includes the ten best matches of France's football Championship each season.
The TELEFOOT channel rounds out the football content that the Group already offers through the Free Ligue 1 Uber Eats app, which is available on the Freebox and mobile phones. This app is the only platform that gives access to almost-live clips of all Ligue 1 Uber Eats goals as well as extensive exclusive content.
