France 24 has extended its outreach in the US, after inking a distribution deal with digital terrestrial network WYBN in New York State.
The English version of the French international news channel is now accessible to 550,000 homes in the area of Albany on channel 14.8.
With the agreement, France 24 also joins the basic offer of regional cable operator Mid Hudson Cable.
France 24 has also strengthened its satellite capacity across the whole American continent. The English version is now available on Intelsat-21, covering both North and South America. The new deal will allow South American operators to carry the English version in addition to the channel's French version, which was already available on the satellite.
