Hello for those who are interested, I found some French TV sites. There's a channel with cartoons: https://www.france.tv/france-4/replay-videos/ and a chain with a little bit of everything: https://www.france.tv/france-3/direct.html
Yes. Still unable to watch any French TV, however I have found a website called molotov.tv which looks like I could be able to watch French TV there. I shall try it.
Update: two problems: 1) it is a paid service to watch TV outside of France (I'm trying to find a free service), and 2) the only countries outside of France that I can use molotov in are in the EU, I live in the UK so post-Brexit I shall be unable to watch TV on the service. (Hopefully this made sense)
Tell me if you're interested and want more channels. There are many others: series, mechanical chains, TV games, auctions.....
