One more:

Liberté, by Gretchen Angelo

It has the advantage of constantly being brought up to date; in some versions it even has answer keys.

But it can be a little difficult to get the audio...

Some reviews by professors can be found here:

The French ministère de la Culture published a review of 350 French Youtubers last November. The list is sorted by the subjects generally taught in French schools: littérature, langues, histoire, géographie, éducation civique, philosophie, économie, mathématiques, physique-chimie, biologie, technologie, arts, et sport. The list can be found here.

Communion of french-speaking protestant churches (outside of France), affiliated to the Protestant federation of France.

http://eglises-protestantes-francophones.org/

EDIT
The catholic equivalent seems to be: Communautes Catholiques Francophones dans le monde

Kraut linked to some french regional TV chains on another thread.
Wikipedia has an article Liste des chaînes de télévision en France that includes even more regional TV links.

I am from USA and I can only gain access to:

https://www.arte.tv/fr/
https://www.francetvinfo.fr/

I am doing so without any Proxy. I am sure people with Proxys can do much more.

For what it's worth, I wasn't using a proxy for the above links nor for www.6play.fr and I'm currently accessing them from the US. I've also been able to access the handful of other regional networks that I've clicked through this morning. That said most of the more popular French networks? Can't access them at all.

You are fortunate; I am not.
When I go to http://www.6play.fr I am able to get thru to the first level for selections but it doesn't allow me to play any of the selections.

That's odd. I will say it did make me make a free account, but the account didn't require that I give a location. And I mean, I haven't used a VPN in weeks (as in weeks before ever going to that URL) and my computer has been restarted multiple times in that time.

I was also blocked in Germany. Although the location in the fill-in form is optional, they blocked my "zone geographique".
