Are Europe’s SVOD Alliances Working?

Back in 2018, French broadcasters TF1, M6, and France Télévisions announced Salto, a jointly-owned subscription video on-demand (SVOD) service designed as a French streaming champion to rival internationals giants like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

But Salto was ominously absent from last month’s announcement that two of Salto’s owners, TF1 and M6, plan to merge. Even more ominous was the statement that as a combined company, TF1 and M6 will “accelerate the development of a French streaming champion, combining a catch-up and live streaming offering and a SVOD service.”
