France Télévisions has selected Arkena, the European leader in media services, to develop its new SVOD platform

Thanks to its expertise in the development of OTT solutions, Arkena has been trusted by France Télévisions to deliver its new project of video-on-demand by subscription (SVOD). This service, dedicated to paid content, will be integrated into the new platform, which will allow the majority of the group’s content to be reviewed on all screens.

Based on Arkena’s Cloud4TV service, the platform will be able to handle large volumes of content for a multi-screen broadcast with a weekly renewal of the offer. With its simple and intuitive back-office, the solution will help to define the marketing offers and to monitor their performance, while subscriber management and financial reporting tools will be provided by Cleeng, a specialist in SVOD platforms and e-commerce videos. Arkena will also provide the integration layer necessary to the unified management of the SVOD within the platform, which includes several technical partners.

“Arkena’s proven experience in the development of OTT platforms and the maturity of its solution enable us to move confidently forward with this strategic project for France Télévisions, with strong expectations in terms of customer experience and very tight deadlines, ensures Julien Verley, Chief Executive Officer of France Télévisions SVOD. “The proximity of the teams and their responsiveness enable them to respond to our needs. Focusing on the quality of service ensures that we provide our users with the best possible experience.”

“We are proud to support France Télévisions on a project of this size, which is fully in line with the Group’s vision of innovation, development and influence,” said Aymeric de Cardes, Chief Executive Officer of Arkena.
