M6 Group, Leading TV Programmer in France, Adopts Adobe Primetime to Extend TV Experiences Beyond the Living Room

Speak­ing with a broad range of the largest tele­vi­sion pro­gram­mers and MSOs recently at IBC and dmexco, it’s clear that con­sumers across the UK and con­ti­nen­tal Europe are hun­gry to watch tele­vi­sion and film across devices.

We’re excited to announce that M6 Group, a lead­ing French tele­vi­sion broad­caster and mem­ber of RTL Group, has selected Adobe Prime­time to sup­port its Android-based appli­ca­tions for smart­phones and tablet devices. iOS sup­port pow­ered by Adobe Prime­time is expected to be avail­able later this year, along with other plat­forms in the future. With Adobe Prime­time, M6 Group can eas­ily and securely deliver simul­cast, live and on-demand TV con­tent from its top net­works to its cus­tomers via mobile apps across devices. We are thrilled to work with M6 Group as our first major TV pro­gram­mer in France bring­ing its lead­ing TV brands to audi­ences across mobile plat­forms.

M6 Group, which serves nearly a quar­ter of the broad­cast audi­ence in France, has incor­po­rated some of Adobe Primetime’s com­po­nents across three of its prop­er­ties: M6, France’s sec­ond most pop­u­lar chan­nel for view­ers under 50; W9, a chan­nel with con­tent for young adults; and 6ter, a chan­nel fea­tur­ing broad con­tent for the whole fam­ily. M6 Group is imple­ment­ing var­i­ous Adobe Prime­time capa­bil­i­ties, includ­ing the Adobe Prime­time Player and DRM to provide the best view­ing expe­ri­ence of pro­tected pre­mium con­tent. Con­sumers in France run­ning devices with Android ver­sion 2.3.3 and higher can down­load these appli­ca­tions today to watch con­tent live and on-demand. Future deploy­ments of Adobe Prime­time for M6 Group’s iOS appli­ca­tions are expected later this year along with added inte­gra­tion of Adobe Primetime’s ad inser­tion com­po­nent.
