French TV broadcaster Canal+ to launch 20 YouTube channels, including Canal Factory for new artists

French pay-TV broadcaster Canal+ is teaming up with YouTube to launch around 20 new channels on the video-sharing platform.

It will be used to promote some of its flagship programming such as Le Grand Journal and Le Petit Journal, as well as content originally broadcast on D8, D17 and i>TĂ©lĂ©. In the spirit of YouTube’s vlogger and indie filmmaker community, CANAL+ will also launch Canal Factory, a new brand tasked with finding breakout artists and creating new content exclusively for the web.
