New users will not have had time to enjoy movies and series in High Definition. The Canal + group announced this Friday evening that it had taken measures aimed at reducing the use of bandwidth by its subscribers … but also by its new viewers.

Canal + recently switched to free mode to combat the potential boredom of containment.

“Faced with the current risk of network saturation, the Canal + group decides to carry out technical operations in order to lower OTT consumption relating to its offers”, according to the latest press release.

OTT (“Over The Top”) consumption or a bypass service means all video content consumed directly on the Internet without going through a third party.

“In this context, in order to best maintain bandwidth, we will allow ISPs (Internet service providers) the ability to suspend the broadcasting of our 4K channels on boxes,” added the company.

It is therefore the content of the MyCanal application and the bouquets of channels of the group that should see the quality of their videos decrease in order to free up bandwidth.

Platforms summoned to act

The French giant follows the examples of the world leader Netflix and its 4 million French subscribers or the essential free YouTube platform who decided to reduce their impact on European Internet traffic in order to avoid network overloads.

European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton on Wednesday called on broadcast platforms and operators to take measures to ease the pressure on the internet.

European legislation preventing ISPs (Internet service providers) from favoring one actor or another, the responsibility therefore lies with the various free or paid video-on-demand subscription services (SVOD) as on the most popular websites. Other platforms should obviously follow.
