The RMC Sport package consists of 18 channels. RMC Sport 1 specializes in special Champions League and Europa League matches, as well as English and Portuguese championships. Although Canal+ has taken over the rights to the Premier League, an agreement between the two companies allows RMC Sport to broadcast the English championship together. RMC Sport 2 focuses more on rugby, basketball and athletics, RMC Sport 3 on extreme sports and RMC Sport 4 on combat sports. The offer was completed by RMC Sport UHD 1, a channel specializing in 4K broadcasting, and RMC Sport News, the new name of BFM Sport. And 12 channels to follow live meetings.
RMC Sport is available by subscription: SFR offers its subscribers as an option for 9 Euros per month, for others 19 Euros per month with commitment (or 25 Euros per month without commitment). It will eventually be available from all operators, including RMC Sport, Orange, Free and Bouygues, but negotiations have been inconclusive due to the amount demanded by SFR. The only third party operators that offer the channel (via satellite) are Canal (full subscription) and Francet. Fortunately, if you’re on Orange, Free or Bouygues and don’t want to switch to SFR, there is a cheat.
How to subscribe to RMC Sport when not in SFR?
Even if you are not in SFR, there are several options for subscribing to RMC Sport and watching 18 channels of the bouquet on your TV:

Undoubtedly the simplest option, if not the most economical. SFR indeed provides a box that allows you to look at its bouquet and subscribe to RMC Sport even if you are with another operator. The box is billed as 69 Euros including tax. The procedure is very simple:
- Go to an SFR store and request a Connect TV
- Connect to your TV at home

RMC Sport available for CanalSat subscribers
It should be noted that for the time being, Canal+ and Altice have reached an agreement for the distribution of RMC Sport channels, but only for CanalSat. Subscribers to this offer can therefore easily enjoy Champions League matches. This no longer represents the majority of Channel subscribers today, but it’s still better than nothing. There is no preferential rate, this way you have to pay 19 Euros to subscribe to the bouquet.
