FRANCE 24, Monte-Carlo Doualiya and RFI now on Windows 8 - 26/10/2012

Latest update : 2012-11-16

On the worldwide release of Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system, FRANCE 24, Monte-Carlo Doualiya and RFI are launching a new radio and TV app.

On the worldwide release of Windows 8, Microsoft’s new operating system, FRANCE 24, Monte-Carlo Doualiya and RFI are launching a radio and TV app that exploits all the features of the new Windows environment for tablets and PCs that will also soon be available on smartphones too.

Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France’s (AEF) media have opted for an increasingly innovative multi-platform distribution strategy and are today the only media to provide a comprehensive international news offer in three languages (French, English, Arabic) right from the launch of this new environment.

The new multilingual service will feature the live broadcast of all three media (television and radio), on-demand programs, live blogs as well as news articles and alerts, allowing Internet, tablet and mobile phone users to keep abreast of all the latest international news.

The app already exists in French, English and Arabic and will be available very shortly in nine other languages: Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Persian, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Hausa and Swahili.

Frédéric Bonnard, Head of New Media, comments “We are pleased to be able to accompany the major development that Microsoft has pulled off with Windows 8 right from the start. For us it is important to offer the best of our radio, TV and web media with a multilingual app for this very innovative operating system. We want to ensure that we are always present on all the new distribution channels and this new app signals another phase of our multi-platform worldwide expansion.”

This brand new multilingual application, which will be updated in real time, is available free from the Windows Boutique at the following address:
