EX­CEP­TIONAL CUL­TURE

France - - La Culture -

France has worked hard over the years to pro­tect its ex­cep­tion cul­turelle, sup­port­ing French film­mak­ers, mu­si­cians and tele­vi­sion pro­duc­ers with sub­si­dies and tax in­cen­tives to en­able them to hold their own against in­ter­na­tional fare. Now three of the coun­try’s big­gest tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ers– state-owned France Télévi­sions, to­gether with TF1 and M6 – are join­ing forces to in­tro­duce a sub­scrip­tion ser­vice called Salto. The ser­vice aims to pro­vide a home-grown al­ter­na­tive to the pow­er­ful Amer­i­canowned Net­flix and will of­fer orig­i­nal con­tent as well as a back cat­a­logue of French-made tele­vi­sion pro­grammes.
