FranceChannel.tv, A New French Streaming Platform Available in the US

Inspired by Britbox, an SVoD service dedicated to British content, French streaming service called France Channel is now officially launched in the US. France Channel is 100% dedicated to French culture and creation, calling itself first “Culturtainment” platform, to attract all American Francophiles, French learners and French living abroad to simply enjoy the best of what France has to offer. It brings together the largest diversified range of French programs, with the biggest selection of movies, series, documentaries and magazines, live shows, cartoons for kids and live, online broadcasting of France 24 international news channels, both in French and English.

Created by Julien Verley, ex. Canal+ and France Television executive, this new platform intends to promote France and French audiovisual creation around the world.

In order to distinguish itself from traditional streaming services, the platform relies on a large library of French cinema (350 to 400 movies), from “César et Rosalie”, with Yves Montand to “Rien à déclarer”, from Dany Boon, but also including “Contre Enquête”, with Jean Dujardin, or “Arsène Lupin” by Jean-Paul Salomé with Romain Duris. 

France Channel also includes a large library of video content allowing to fully discover French culture, in the areas like gastronomy, tourism, history, luxury, lifestyle and art de vivre with flagship programs e.g. “Secrets d’Histoire”, “des Racines et des Ailes” or “Échappées Belles”. "Daily soap” French series which achieved a great success in France will also be offered to the American public.

New content will be added every week to enrich the offer. For instance, in September, France Channel will add such titles like “Le Dîner de Cons”, by Francis Weber, or “Chocolat”, with Omar Sy.

“Apart from Spanish, French is the most widely learned language in the United States,” says Julien Verley. Thus France Channel will also be positioned as a tool for learning the French language with a selection of programs available with subtitles in both English and French.

France Channel is available on the web, thru Apple and Android mobile apps, as well as on Roku store. Soon, it will also be accessible thru Struum, a new platform launched by the former CEO of Disney, Michael Eisner.
