France Televisions secures reinforced digital content rights ahead of Salto SVoD platform launch

Monday 14 January 2019 | 21:44 CET | News
Public broadcaster France Televisions has reached a new funding agreement with five unions representing French producers in the media industry. The deal covers the 2019-2022 period and renews the broadcaster's commitment to co-finance original content produced by its long-standing partners. In exchange, France Televisions has secured a longer period of exclusivity for digital rights, better protecting content which could otherwise be distributed by SVoD players such as Netflix.
