Introduction

A detailed update of France’s TV market, encompassing free-to-air and pay TV across all TV technologies plus next-generation TV initiatives and OTT video.

Highlights

  • The merger of Numericable and SFR by Altice, which was completed in 2015, at the time created a new market leader in terms of total TV subscriber numbers. However, since then, Orange's impressive growth saw its IPTV/DTH service surpass Numericable–SFR's combined subscriber base, making it the market leader for pay TV.
  • Although it is no longer the market leader, the Numericable–SFR merger has presented important new convergence opportunities, and has seen the enlarged company adopt an aggressive premium content strategy.

Features and Benefits

  • Gain an insight into how the pay-TV and TV advertising sectors are faring in France.
  • Assess the prospects for multiscreen/OTT initiatives in the French TV market.

Key questions answered

  • How is OTT faring in France, and what strategies are operators adopting to deal with the threat of Netflix?
  • How has the merger of Numericable and SFR reshaped the TV and telecoms markets?
