The new channel Figaro Live, a collection of reports from the newspaper of record that shares its name, was introduced to bolster the line-up.
But Altice, which had been in negotiations to acquire the streaming service since January, than told Molotov it was withdrawing its channels. Last month, it was reported those negotiations were in trouble.
Molotov says the channels have been withdrawn following a trial period. It’s not clear if or when they will return.
Launched in 2016, Molotov, available on computers, mobiles, tablets and TV sets, boasts more than 7 million users. The company had not hidden for a few months that it was looking for partners to accelerate its development, amid press reports that the company was running out of money to continue operations.
