I rather wish we didn’t have TV. Or, I wish we watched more French TV.
Online works well for news, and I found out through this article at TheLocal.fr about a good French tv series site: https://www.6play.fr/ and there’s also this website: Culturebox - Festivals, concerts & vidéos culturelles en streaming | France tv
I subscribed to Sudouest for French news online. But I found that I didn’t read it all that often. Instead, I like to pick up the Charente Libre in print form, when I’m having a coffee. I buy it at the local boulangerie or tabac. I think you can subscribe to it online as well.
I’ve lived here for four years, and try to dedicate time every day (some days not at all, some days lots) to reading the news about France; sometimes, reading the news online in English, about France, is all I end up doing. But on my best days I’ve read an article or two in TheLocal.fr, and then scanned a French online news site, and read an article or two.
But actually, reading Charente Libre at a cafe is where I read more of the content than at any other time. Somehow, sitting in a French cafe, reading a French newspaper for a few minutes, really gets me to read the news and all the smaller bits about local life.
I read some research on how well one absorbs the written word when one reads online, versus in print. The research results showed that one gets distracted too easily when reading online and one doesn’t absorb or stick with it as much.
So if possible, I’d recommend reading a local French newspaper in print (as opposed to online), while sitting somewhere enjoying the local ambience and drinking a beverage of choice
