FOX International Channels is extending the distribution of its factual programming and travel channels National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild and Voyage to make them available for the first time on French IPTV Freebox TV.

Formerly carried in exclusivity on dish and cable offers Canalsat and Numericable, the three pay-TV channels will be available in the basic offer in HD and with their replay services.

FOX International Channels France MD Frédéric Chevance said the collaboration will enable it "to gain great visibility in the French market, more than doubling our number of households."
