Francois Godard, a senior media analyst for Enders Analysis based in France, said the situation was “a sad one” for French football. “The lack of competition in the domestic TV industry is the big problem,” he said. “The league has made such a big mistake when it sold the rights to Mediapro and then to Amazon instead of agreeing a deal with Canal+.” Godard believes the LFP suffered from “over-confidence” after its 2021 agreement to sell a 13 per cent stake in its commercial operations to CVC Capital Partners for €1.5billion. The money was shared out between the clubs but means that CVC will take a cut of future TV money meaning even less for the teams. Godard said selling the football rights directly to consumers was “very risky” as it was untested. “You are giving up the value of exclusivity,” he added. “I am worried they are going to be burning their boats.”

Commenting on the expansion in the context of the Standard’s decline, Douglas McCabe, director of publishing at Enders Analysis, told City A.M.: “It’s impossible not to feel sad about the retreat of the Evening Standard as a great city newspaper of outstanding heritage. “It all too elegantly illustrates some of the fears about local news droughts our research has been describing in recent years. “A small, agile, journalism-focused service like The Mill is a sound idea, though London’s enormous footprint is both prize and challenge. “
The New York Times in 2012 brought in former BBC boss Mark Thompson. In his eight years as chief executive, he was credited with steering a digital transformation that has made the paper a staggering exception to its industry’s malaise. It is “a good case study that other media owners are hoping to follow”, said Claire Enders, a US-born media analyst based in the UK.
In an interview with Le Monde, independent British researcher and expert Claire Enders, who is a reference in the analysis of media strategies beyond the United Kingdom, believes that, without assigned and independent resources, a merger of France Télévisions , Radio France, France Médias Monde and the INA would be dangerous.
