The Altice group sees everything in doubles for the final of the Champions League. On 1 June, the summit between Tottenham and Liverpool will be broadcast live on its sports pay channel RMC Sport and simultaneously on its free news channel BFMTV. If the match is the same, the two channels have however set up separate devices with different journalists.
On BFMTV, the grand finale will be commented by Jean Resseguié and Eric Di Meco. And it is Bruce Toussaint who will ensure the programs before and after the match from a studio installed in the Estadio Metropolitano of Madrid, which will host the clash between the two English clubs. The presenter will be surrounded by the house consultants (Emmanuel Petit, Frank Leboeuf, etc.)
RMC Sport side, it is Jean-Baptiste Boursier who will manage the programs around the meeting, commented by Eric Huet and Jerome Rothen. The journalist will also be in a studio with a view on the field alongside notably Christophe Dugarry and Willy Sagnol.
Tensions between BFMTV and the CSA
Last week, the Superior council of audio-visual lamented that the meeting is diffused on the news channel, judging "incompatible" the match with its channel format dedicated to the information. But BFMTV has decided to ignore this warning. The channel will broadcast the match as planned, believing that in the agreement signed with the CSA, which gives it a license to broadcast, it can broadcast "events of major importance". According to her, a Champions League final fits that definition perfectly.
The Sages and the leaders of the chain will probably have an explanation on this subject during the month of June, since the CSA can not sanction the media that a posteriori.
