French SVoD platform Salto faces delay, could soft-launch before summer - report

Thursday 6 February 2020 | 11:58 CET | News
The commercial launch of Salto will take place after the summer and not in the first quarter of this year as previously announced, reports Les Echos citing industry sources. However, a soft-launch could still take place before summer as a workforce of around 40 employees is already in place under the helm of Thomas Follin. As recruitment progresses, Salto's staff is expected to increase to 50-60 overall during the next three months.
