inédit "en clair"

I posted this under Rugby in the sports bit as it is referring to a television program tonight

There is no literal translation I can think of.

I reckon it means.. unseen "obviously" but I would like to know what other people think

 

Thanks

Unscrambled.  I take it this is a satelite broadcast?

Re: inédit "en clair"

inédit = not broadcast before / 1st broadcast (on this channel)

en clair = unscrambled, as per Cooperlola's post.

For example, films are usually broadcast first of all on Canal+, for which you have to pay a subscription.

Eventually they are shown on TF1 or France2. The first time this happens they are described as "Inedit En Clair".

Thanks everyone. I can tell the kids they can watch the rugby tonight without getting their hopes up, turning it on, and finding a black screen.

BJSLIV: I understand what you are saying but I'm a bit bemused by it all as this is a live final, not a repeat.

Still, i've learnt some useful french today

I think it would only specify "en clair" if it was on a channel that is usually scrambled for non-subscribers (such as Canal+).

Can't see why you had problems with it; I did not.

It was very live and Direct.

Like the Heiniken Final today on France 2.

Then you could watch a repeat on French Eurosport.

No problems as well. I didn't think there was going to be though.

Great result for Harlequins on Friday night and a fantastic game of two halves yesterday. Bad luck for Northants.

Just need Blackpool to get a point today (and Wigan to draw and Spurs to stuff Birmingham)...not much to ask really
