Canal+ on Xbox

Aug. 3, 2010

Canal+ brings Canal’s quality, on-demand content to the Xbox, exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, including a never before seen social feature that lets friends watch together.

Leading user experience strategy and design, we worked directly with teams at Canal and Xbox to make Canal’s huge range of premium entertainment irresistible to Xbox Live subscribers.

The simple, clever AllofUs-designed user experience is proving so popular that it’s now used by its parent group, Vivendi, worldwide as an example of successful innovation, and Canal’s new set-top box interface will actually mirror the online version.

As well as Canal’s 120 live channels, Canal+ offers premium film and sports subscription channels, on-demand catch-up services and movie downloads, to more than 10,000 unique users a month, all through Xbox Live.

In addition to offering content, we’re also exploring the social aspects of online entertainment. That’s why Canal+ integrates with Xbox Live’s avatar system, and the ‘party room viewing’ feature lets you watch, post comments on, and chat about your favourite programmes in real-time with your friends – a groundbreaking peek into the future of interactive entertainment.
