Not just the national government.
When the prefecture of Alpes Maritimes asked ASF/Vinci to install a variable speedlimit system they refused on cost grounds.

At least most platforms these days give you the option to choose which language and/or subtitles you want.
Even broadcast TV in France was doing this for many UK/US shows after the digital switchover.

Luckily here in France many employers have out acquiesced to new contracts to enable hybrid WFH.
(Previously French employment law was very concerned about "lieu de travail" and working from home could be more-or-less proscribed by one's contract.)
"I went to an audio demonstration back in the 90's for Rega turntables and heard both the vinyl and CD versions of Crowded House's Weather With You"
If you'd gone there and they'd demonstrated a '90s CD Player was better than a Riga turntable they'd have killed off their business there and then.
