New clues are bouncing about an extension of the show section on iTunes across Europe: Apple is looking for a manager who will deal with the expansion to the French market.
The news bounces directly from the site that Apple uses for job vacancies. Here on 9 May, or Friday, the search for a candidate appeared who will have to play the role of "chief of iTunes TV" for the transalpine market. Nothing more clear about Apple's intentions could emerge beyond what we read in the role that will play. The candidate will have to "negotiate and implement TV content for iTunes in France".
In recent days, several transalpine sites have given news of an imminent landing of TV content also in the French version of iTunes and the search for a manager who will deal with prominent tasks such as negotiations and the conclusion of agreements in a local key, represents in substance confirms that the car really started.
We remind you that at the moment TV shows and TV shows, outside the USA, are already available for the German, British and Canadian markets. The French market appears to be more complex due to the reduced, compared to other countries, the number of Anglophone production shows circulating on local TV and the very high production of local content, whether they are sitcoms, shows, information shows, TV series. Most likely, the particularity of the market, very rooted in a local key, requires that "significant experience regarding the French television industry" and therefore local that Apple requires from the candidate and which is probably not so essential elsewhere. As knowledge is not essential, at least as much as in France, knowledge of the tastes of the public less approved to that which characterizes other nations.
