ICI TOU.TV is a French Canadian video-on-demand website launched on January 26, 2010 by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

History[edit]

At launch, the site offered 2000 hours of French-language television content, near high definition in quality, provided by several TV channels, such as Ici Radio-Canada Télé, RDI, ARTV, Télé-Québec, TV5MONDE, TV5 Québec Canada, TFO, Radio Canada International, RTS (Switzerland) and RTBF (Belgium).[2][3]

In February 2014, the site was re-branded as Ici TOU.TV as part of a plan to unify CBC's French-language outlets around a single brand.[4][5]

In May 2018, it was announced that Bell Media, the National Film Board of Canada, TV5 Québec Canada, and V Media Group would contribute content to TOU.TV's premium Extra tier, as part of an effort to better compete with Netflix on the availability of Quebecois and French-language content.[6] Télé-Quebec later joined the partnership in the following months.

Available contents[edit]

Contents found on the service mostly include series in the French-language. Following the website rebrand in May 2018, contents are placed into sections such as the following:
