France 24, Monte-Carlo Doualiya and RFI, which are part of AEF’s media offerings, are launching a TV app exploiting all the features of Microsoft’s new Windows environment for tablets, PCs and eventually smartphones.

At present Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France’s media firms claim to be the only companies providing an 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 programmes, live blogs as well as news articles and alerts on Internet, tablets and mobile phones.

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.
