Its publication coincides with the French Series Mania Festival in Lille, where report author, Gilles Fontaine, the Observatory’s Head of Department for Market Information, will present his findings on 2 and 3 May. The data was collected for 2015 and 2016 and covers 102 different services: 52 private channels, 45 public channels and 5 SVOD services.

4. The role of public and private broadcasters

Public broadcasters are involved in the production of the vast majority (73%) of TV fiction titles. However, private audiovisual groups[2], generally speaking, tend to focus their investments on a more limited number of long-running projects. Private broadcasters therefore account for 56% of the number of hours produced, vs. 44% for public broadcasters.
