France24 also launches its English version on Intelsat-21 satellite, which already carries the French version of the news channel, that covers North and South America.
This new satellite capacity will facilitate the direct signal reception by South American cable operators and thus allow the channel to expand its audience throughout the continent.
France24 has also concluded a new distribution agreement in the United States with WYBN digital terrestrial television network and strengthens its presence in New York State.
France24 English version is now available on channel 14.8 to 550,000 households across the Albany/Schenectady/Troy Designated Market Area (DMA). Thanks to this agreement, the channel is also accessible in the digital basic package from the local cable operator Mid Hudson Cable.
