Ici Tou.TV Extra expands
Montreal-based video-on-demand service Ici Tou.TV Extra has recently signed a series of agreements with various French-language content developers. Radio-Canada, Groupe V Media, Bell Media, TV5 Quebec Canada and the National Film Board of Canada have signed agreements to make approximately 700 hours of television content available through the service. This includes fiction, documentaries, reality programming and magazine-style content. Ici Tou.TV is a division of CBC/Radio-Canada.
"I firmly believe that all stakeholders involved in the production and distribution of French-language content must come together to solidify our positioning vis-à-vis the major global players in the digital media universe," said Michel Bissonnette, executive vice-president of French services at CBC/Radio-Canada. "In that spirit, Ici Tou.TV Extra is evolving to become a platform open to other Franco players."
