TV5 Monde extends DISH distribution contract

The international French language broadcaster TV5 Monde says it has renewed its distribution contract with Echostar’s DISH Network for a period of five years. The channel is part of a French language bouquet that also includes Euronews, 3A Télésud, Trace TV and Eurochannel.

The channel claims to be the most watched of all foreign language broadcasters in the US except for Spanish language broadcasts, beating all other European and Asian language services.
