The French OTT service Salto, a collaboration between France Télévisions, M6 and TF1, is gearing up to go live on October 20.
The platform will deliver French audiences access to more than 10,000 hours of streaming programs in a wide variety of genres. Alongside cinema and series, the catalog will offer access to documentaries, youth-skewed programs, live information, sports and more.
Salto will feature French programs, along with hit shows from Quebec, Spain, the U.S., Switzerland, Belgium, Scandinavia, Israel and elsewhere. Subscribers will be guided through program recommendations thanks to a dedicated editorial team (rather than an algorithm),
Thomas Follin, general director of Salto, said: “Salto goes live to meet new public expectations on what goes straight to their hearts. There is a strong demand from the French audience to get access to a wider streaming offer, more diversified, more popular, and for TV that gets rid of ‘programmation’ moments. A new popular offer to bring them together and looking like them.”
