French television on demand
Today I passed by the public television building in the 15th arrondissement (this photo) and I realized I never really dealt with the French TV scene (although you probably remember the launch of France 24). There is a mix of private (TF1, M6, Canal Plus...) and public channels (France 2, 3, 4, 5 and ô) all ruled by pretty strong regulations : not more than one commercials break per hour, no films on Wednesdays, Fridays or Saturdays, etc. What is interesting for you is that more and more programs are now available on VOD on the Internet (most of them for free)... One of my favorite shows is this one, where they show footage from the 60's or 70's.
