What is Canal Plus?
Canal Plus (sometimes stylized as "Canal+") is a French premium television service that operates several standalone channels such as Canal+ Cinema, Canal+ Sport, and Canal+ Family. Its programming encompasses blockbuster movies, live sports, docu-series, reality TV, and much more. Many of the most popular and globally-renowned French TV shows that end up on other streaming platforms are Canal+ productions.
Canal+ also offers premium international content, such as new shows from HBO and an add-on Disney+ tier that includes that platform's popular family-friendly series and movies. Whether you want your Ligue 1 fix or simply want to kick back and relax with a movie on Paramount, Canal Plus provides French, English, and Asian-themed entertainment under one easy-to-use subscription umbrella.

Does ExpressVPN reduce streaming speeds?
ExpressVPN is frequently ranked as one of the fastest VPN services. While a VPN may cause a slight reduction in streaming speeds, ExpressVPN’s global servers are optimized for latency and speed, so you might not notice any difference.
ExpressVPN has no bandwidth caps, and it can also help you avoid ISP throttling. Therefore, in some cases, ExpressVPN will actually boost speeds and improve your Canal Plus streaming experience.
Can I get a free trial of ExpressVPN?
ExpressVPN offers a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee, meaning you can fully experience the service to see if it works for you and helps you enjoy your favorite streaming providers. You’ll receive a full refund if you’re not satisfied for any reason.
Should I use a free proxy server or DNS code to watch Canal Plus?
We do not recommend the use of free DNS codes or proxy servers. Both these services are unsecured, unreliable, slow, and might be monitored by the system administrators. If you’re looking to stream Canal Plus reliably and with top speeds, a VPN service like ExpressVPN is your best bet.
Can I use ExpressVPN for other things besides streaming?
Oui oui! ExpressVPN helps you access the internet with freedom and security. You can use it to stay private online, securely use public Wi-Fi, find the best e-commerce deals, and access social media sites where they might otherwise be restricted. Check out the Get Started page for more insights on how to make the most of your ExpressVPN subscription.
Why streamers love ExpressVPN
Perfect. Unlike other VPNs that took forever to stream anything, with ExpressVPN I never notice a difference at all. It takes a lot to make me happy but this did it for me.
Have been using this service for two years now... it's infallible. Works with every app and streaming service. Uptime is good, no stuttering or delay on streams.
This is the first VPN service that doesn't slow down or buffer my streaming services while I'm at home. I appreciate that and thank you all for doing it right!
