Traditional media companies like Canal+ are under pressure to find ways to bulk up their content as they face competition from deep-pocketed online streaming platforms such as Netflix Inc
"This exclusive partnership is a new major step in the transformation of the Canal+ model," said the French broadcaster's chief executive, Maxime Saada.
Saada declined to say how much Canal+ would charge for Disney+.
Kevin Mayer, who heads Disney's Direct-to-consumer & International business, confirmed the U.S. group hoped to acquire 60 million to 90 million customers by 2024.
