TV5Monde lands on Roku devices

French international network TV5Monde has signed a new distribution partnership to bring its streaming service TV5MONDEplus to Roku users in a number of territories.  

The TV5MONDEplus app will begin to roll out on Roku streaming devices, starting with France, Germany, Mexico, the UK and the US, with additional countries to come.

It will be jointly marketed in each local territory by TV5Monde and Roku.

Roku is the number one-ranked TV streaming platform in the US, Canada, and Mexico by hours streamed.

Consumers can select from a variety of products including streaming players, audio devices such as Roku Streambars, wireless speakers, and wireless subwoofers, and Roku TV models.

TV5MONDEplus features content subtitled in up to six languages – Arabic, English, French, German, Romanian and Spanish – from partners including SRC (Société Radio Canada), Télé Quebec, TV5 Québec Canada, RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse), RTBF (Radio Télévision Belge Francophone) France Télévisions and TV5MONDE SAS.

The service’s current line-up includes documentary Jean-Michel Basquiat, l’Afrique au coeur, Franco-Belgian drama Rouge, Africa-set mini-series Wara from France, Senegal and Niger, Swiss police drama Wilder and Canadian comedy cher prise.

“With TV5Monde available in more than 200 countries around the world, we are pleased to expand the availability of TV5MONDEplus as we continue to seek additional opportunities to grow our streaming audience,” said TV5Monde president and CEO Yves Bigot.

“Roku, as one of the world’s top streaming platforms that is growing internationally, is an ideal partner for this expansion.”
