France Télévisions "discontinuation of full work on YouTube" – said on Thursday the president of the public group Delphine Ernotte on the "Media Seine" forum, which brought together the leaders of the most important French audiovisual groups.
"YouTube is a great tool, it's a youth screen, but" sharing "the revenue that YouTube uses is a hint for small employees," said France Television president, referring to the number of "two million euros".
"When the monopoly situation is a little less violent", together with the new competitors of the platform, "there will be undoubtedly new discussions," said the president of France Television.
Delphine Ernotte has already pointed out that the series produced by France Television will no longer be broadcast in another gigantic online video, Netflix, while the group plans to launch its own Salto platform, with TF1 and M6.
The YouTube director of Partnerships in the South of Europe, Justine Ryst, said instead that the platform was "in complementarity with the media groups" during the discussion panel on the future of television. .
Delphine Ernotte, General Manager of the TF1 group, Gilles Pélisson, explained that the way the content of their groups was treated by YouTube was "unacceptable".
Gilles Pélisson also attacked Netflix, who does not "share his data" on the consumption habits of viewers and does not participate sufficiently "in financing the French creation".
"We are witnessing a burglary of resources," said Nicolas de Tavernost, president of the board of the M6. "There are many things that can be broadcast on Netflix (…) But we want to fight on equal terms" – said the leader, calling for the liberalization of the sector, in particular in the field of advertising.
The CEO of Canal + Maxime Saada said for his part that "the best response to Netflix" being the "Canal + digital expression": his group will launch the offer "at a basic level" at the end of the first quarter of 2019, which would replace CanalPlay.
The first edition of this forum "Médias en Seine" was organized by Les Echos and Franceinfo, and sponsored in particular by Google, the parent company Youtube.
