Molotov is a new distribution service that offers a completely new way to access programs and channels and reinvents how audiences watch television. It allows users to post favorite programs in HD quality on TV from their phone, tablet, or computer.

Molotov's search engine is particularly powerful. Type "Cary Grant" for example, and Molotov instantly displays the corresponding programs, whether live, in Replay or in the future. Also try with the name of an actor or director. 

Molotov was founded in 2015 by JeanDavid Blanc, founder of AlloCiné, Pierre Lescure, founder of Canal+, Jean-Marc Denoual (exTF1) and is located in Paris, Ile-de-France, France.


Molotov is backed by Sky, Idinvest Partners, Cherry Tree Investments, & Marc Ménasé.
