      Sky invests £3.4m in French TV streaming platform Molotov

      https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...atform-molotov
      Service operates on a ‘freemium’ model offering on-demand viewing from both free and pay-TV channels

      Sky has taken a multimillion-pound stake in Molotov, a French streaming platform that combines free and pay-TV channels.

      It has invested €4m (£3.4m) in Molotov as part of a larger financing round, six months after it took a $45m stake in Asian Netflix rival iflix.

      Molotov, founded in 2014 and launched publicly in July, offers a “freemium” model that offers live and on-demand viewing from both free and pay-TV channels.

      The free service has 35 basic channels, including all the major French networks while for €9.99 subscribers can get another 37 channels.

      “Sky has invested €4m in Molotov, an over-the-top video platform in France that distributes free and pay TV channels and content to consumers via a freemium model,” said Sky.

      “This investment is part of a larger Molotov financing round and is the latest in a series of Sky investments in innovative startup companies.”

      I think that perhaps they should have gone to Brixton for this company. However that would be a little dated.
