France has developed its digital media market on the back of an excellent multi-platform broadband infrastructure which supports a range of videostreaming services (IPTV and SVoD). A greater proportion of broadband subscribers are adopting bundled offers incorporating both mobile and fixed-line voice and data services. Triple-play remains the preferred bundle for most customers though quad-play is the fastest growing combination.
The success of this market largely rests on fierce competition which has brought the cost of most bundles to below 30 per month. The consolidated cable sector is now dominated by Numéricable-SFR, which manages an upgraded network capable of competing effectively with DSL offerings, and which (since the acquisition of SFR) has been able to provide a full range of fixed-line and mobile services.
Significant progress has also been made in France's digital terrestrial TV sector, with the first region having been switched to digital services.
This report reviews France's multiple-play and digital media sectors, including services such as VoD and IPTV and developments in digital, cable and satellite TV. It also examines the latest regulatory measures relating to digital convergence and applications.
