Thanks to nc + GO, subscribers can watch TV channels and video-on-demand content from their package on the screen of a smartphone, tablet or computer. The app was created at a time when streaming services were launched. So there were hourly usage limits for nc + GO. Subscribers with the most expensive packages can use the service for 744 hours without additional fees, and subscribers with the most expensive packages can use the service for up to 3 hours per month.
In September 2019, the nc+ platform changed its name to Canal+. In May 2020, the online streaming service Canal + was launched. No time limits and also available on Smart TV (Android TV, Tizen). So having nc + GO becomes redundant. Especially since the name of the site and the application refers to the previous name of the platform.
