The French international broadcaster TV5 Monde will return to the Dutch UPC cable nets in Gelderland, Hilversum and Zuid-Holland South on July 1.

Last year, UPC removed the broadcaster from its entire network, both on the analogue and digital tiers.

However, the channel remained on those part of the UPC network where the local programme council has advised to carry TV5 in basic analogue.

From July, another 700,000 analogue homes will be added thanks to positive advice from four more programme councils.
