That’s it. Salto, the French-style Netflix, is officially available to everyone. The platform can be accessed both from a computer’s web browser and from a smartphone, an application is available on Android as well as on iOS.
With the first month offered, Salto hopes to seduce the French public. The platform, which claims some 10,000 hours of series, films, documentaries and children’s programs, does not only offer programs on demand. It also offers direct access to nearly twenty channels as well as their replay.

All offers offered by the service are non-binding and can be canceled at any time. Here is everything you need to know to start using Salto today.

Then choose the profile associated with the account (and the chosen plan). You can choose a profile in your name, select a profile Kids where the selected programs will target children, or select a profile Several that will mix together program suggestions for the whole family.
5. Navigate in Salto
The general interface of the service is well thought out and offers fairly clear navigation. You will be able to browse the content by Thematic or by Channel, but also let the platform suggest programs through different sections (The Top Salto, Ca just arrived, All the replay, Previews, etc.) .
While Salto seems to work fine on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox, the service may not work on other browsers. This is for example the case of Brave which is considered by the platform to be too old.
