Bedrock, the streaming-tech joint venture formed by Groupe M6 and RTL Group, is powering Salto, the streaming service that launched in France this week.

The joint platform between the three major French broadcasters: Groupe TF1, France Télévisions and Groupe M6 is using Bedrock’s streaming technology for all its operations.

Bedrock has met Salto’s advanced requirements, providing a complete streaming end-to-end solution able to uniquely aggregate a leading broadcast experience with 20 live channels including catch-up services and live sports events, and a premium SVoD catalogue gathering 10,000+ hours covering all genres and formats.

Jonas Engwall, Chief Executive Officer at Bedrock, said: “Bedrock is one of a few European streaming-tech companies with the scale and expertise needed to deliver a user experience on par with the global streaming giants. We are proud to power such a unique SVoD platform as Salto and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

Thomas Follin, CEO at Salto, added: “Bedrock’s technology empowers Salto to become a powerful streaming service pushing the TV experience forward. Our partnership allows us to rely on Bedrock’s best-in-class streaming technology with promising potential. I would like to thank Bedrock’s teams for their hard work and contribution to Salto’s successful launch.”
