TF1 Group, which claims to be the largest European media group offering free-to-air channels TF1, TMC, TFX, TF1 Series Films and LCI, has chosen Streamroot’s patented technology to enhance the delivery of content via online video.

TF1 US 25Jan2018The group is increasingly innovating in web, mobile and emerging online media formats. With its MYTF1 digital platform generating more than 1.3 billion videos in 2017, TF1 was at the stage where it needed delivery solutions to ensure long-term scalability and profitability. “We take pride in offering TV-quality streaming to our growing online viewer base,” explained e-TF1 CTO Nicolas Theraroz. “Scaling to TV-size audiences on a digital platform – while maintaining the same quality standards – requires more than simply adding servers. It calls for a ground-breaking solution.”

To reinforce capacity and promote high quality, TF1 implemented Streamroot DN distributed network architecture across its digital offerings including catch-up TV, as well as its live and on-demand video services on the MyTF1 Direct and Replay platforms. “Partnering with Streamroot was a logical choice for TF1,” Theraroz added. “We’re extremely pleased with the results. Streamroot delivers 80% of our most popular streams and offers the elasticity that we need to scale to hit primetime content and the world’s largest sporting events with ease.”

“We are proud to help TF1 deliver when the stakes are highest, and look forward to powering their online platforms for major events such as this summer’s FIFA World Cup,” remarked Streamroot CEO and co-Founder Pierre-Louis Theron. “It is a great honor for Streamroot to be working with the leading free-to-air television group in France, and to contribute to the immersive video experience it provides millions of viewers worldwide.”
