Delphine Ernotte, president of France Télévisions, wants to modernize French television so that its content can be exportable to international markets. Furthermore, the newly appointed president is hoping to reach younger audiences as television in France competes with media streaming platforms (mostly U.S.-based), and is determined to also create streaming content. Unlike U.S. television shows immediately going online after the conclusion of a season, French television has yet to explore those possibilities. It is interesting to see what direction French television will take in a few years.
