France 24 consists of three separate TV channels which broadcast in French, English and Arabic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They share the same mission of providing a global public service and a common editorial stance. The website is also available in three languages. The journalists from the three channels work together, pooling their expertise.
France 24 broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week to 250 million TV households in 177 countries around the world. In addition to this non-stop broadcasting service, 71 million TV households receive the channel through part-time distribution agreements with national broadcasters.
19 satellites carry at least one of France 24’s three signals to ensure worldwide coverage, allowing direct satellite reception as well as access through nearly 700 distribution contracts with pay providers.
The channel is available via cable, satellite, ADSL, on mobile phones, tablets and connected TVs. France 24 is also available via DTT in several countries around the world: Italy, Denmark, DRC, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, Rwanda, Nigeria, Uganda, Cape Verde, Guinea, Mauritius, Estonia, Haiti, the United States, Laos and Cambodia.
In 2013, France 24 notched up over 40 million new TV households, thanks notably to a historic agreement in India where the English channel can now be accessed by one out of four Indian TV households. France 24 is now also widely distributed in the San Francisco area in California, after becoming available to 2.5 million households in the region.
