The leading private media group in freeview television in France
The TF1 group occupies a unique position in French broadcasting, producing five complementary freeview channels (TF1, TMC, TFX, TF1 Séries Films and the rolling news channel LCI). In 2017, together they claimed an average 27.7% share of the audience of individuals aged 4 and over, and 32.3% of the target audience of women under 50 who are purchasing decision-makers (source: Médiamétrie).
The TF1 group constantly adapts its products to changing consumer behaviour and consequently develops exclusive digital content and VOD offers to reach all viewer segments across all platforms. Synergies between TV and digital technologies effectively help to extend the reach of the brands broadcast on the group’s TV channels, especially thanks to the acquisition of a majority stake in MinuteBuzz and the creation of Studio71 France, in partnership with ProsiebenSat.1.
Furthermore, Le Lab TF1 has set up within Station F, which is the leading start-up incubator in the world and located in Paris.
A strong advertising sales division
TF1’s advertising sales teams, which market the TF1 group’s audiences, offer advertisers unique exposure opportunities, combining the strong ratings of its TV channels with the advantages of personal digital media.
They also sell advertising space on the lci.fr website, Indés Radios (local radio stations) and many websites.
The TF1 group is extending its offering of digital services via the creation of the
European Broadcaster Exchange (EBX) advertising sales agency with ProSiebenSat.1, Mediaset (Spain and Italy) and Channel 4.
A producer of pay-TV channels
The TF1 group produces a number of pay-TV theme channels – TV Breizh, Histoire, Ushuaïa and Serieclub – to meet viewer demand for specific content.
A group that produces audiovisual content
The TF1 group also produces and distributes audiovisual content. The acquisition of a majority stake in the Newen group has enabled the TF1 group to step up the roll‑out of production and distribution both in France and internationally. Consequently, the group now controls the entire content value chain from production upstream to distribution downstream.
