France will be the first country to receive Netflix's first channel offering.
Direct will be a linear channel that airs shows in real-time. It will only be available via web browser.
France was chosen as the testing country for this feature due to its consumption of traditional TV.
Many people in France prefer a laid back experience where they don't have to choose shows.
The feature may also appeal to older demographics, which make up a significant portion of households in France.
