FRANCE 24 has signed a new distribution agreement in the United States with Time Warner Cable, allowing FRANCE 24, English version, to be available 24/7 throughout the New York Metropolitan area (Tri-State Area).
With 1.5 million subscribers throughout the Tri-State Area, Time Warner Cable now distributes FRANCE 24 English version in its basic package on channel 501.

For Philippe Rouxel, VP Worldwide Distribution, “this agreement is a crucial step for our channel and its ongoing implementation in the US. This launch on Time Warner is not only a source of great satisfaction, it is also extremely symbolic, showing that the channel has proven its capacity to attract and interest the North American audience.”
