France 24 is a French continuous international news television channel, created on November 30, 2005, and broadcasting since December 6, 2006. Since 2012, it has been a channel of the national program company France Médias Monde, which supervises the audiovisual outside of France.
The channel was born from the desire of French President Jacques Chirac in 2002 to give France a voice abroad, facing the American (CNN International), British (BBC World News), and Qatari (Al Jazeera) competitors. After several years and numerous reports, the CFII project gave birth in 2005 to a channel owned in equal parts by the public group France Télévisions and the private one TF1. In 2008, according to Nicolas Sarkozy's wishes, she joined the new Audiovisual holding company outside France (future France Médias Monde) alongside the RFI and MCD radios.
It broadcasts in French, English, Arabic, and Spanish1 on TNT Île-de-France channel 33, satellite, cable, IP television, and the web. It is also available in hotels, airlines, airports, and its programs are partially picked up by foreign television channels. Available in more than 355 million homes across more than 180 countries, France 24 is watched each week by 55 million viewers in 2018, while its website is visited by more than 18 million Internet users on average each month. The France Info news channel resumes its programs from midnight to 6.30 a.m. on weekdays and from midnight to 6 a.m. on weekends.
