    Post New twist in LCI saga

    France’s TF1 has devised a new plan for its closure-threatened channel LC1.

    According to Le Figaro, it would see the information-based service transformed into a pay channel providing several hours of original programming every day, breaking news as well as offering content on demand on all screens.

    Significantly, it would seek carriage on IPTV networks operated by Orange, SFR-Numericable, Free and Bouygues Telecom.

    However, such a transformation would also see LC1 shed up to 60% of its workforce.

    LCI’s future has been in doubt since July 29, when the National Audiovisual Council (CSA) refused to grant it free to air status.

    As a pay-DTT service, it has only attracted an average of around 14,000 viewers every quarter hour and will see its annual distribution income of €15 million end in December.

    LCI only makes €4 million each year in advertising revenue.

    Although closure remains on the cards, TF1 may also consider bids for LC1 by Le Figaro and Le Monde.
