France 24 has concluded a new distribution agreement in India to enable its English version to be available on the free-to-air (FTA) direct-to-home (DTH) service DD Direct+.

Thanks to this agreement, France 24 is also available on the basic offer of Dish TV, the leading private satellite operator in the country.

The French international news channel will now be available 24/7 to 31 million additional households across India, in addition to the seven million households that already receive the channel via cable.

One in every four Indian television households can now access France 24.
