!!Sacre Bleu!! – France 24 in French launches across US on 14 July – Bastille Day!

The French-language version of international news channel France 24 will be available throughout the US from 14 July, which is “Bastille Day”. Up to now, France 24 has been available in English in certain regions of the United States. Now the French channel will be broadcast 24 hours a day throughout the US via the Dish satellite television service. The Director General of France 24, Christine Ockrent, has made the trip to New York for the occasion: “When the major [domestic] channels, whatever their qualities, are covering less international news, you have everything here in America for an audience looking for news, a global public who wish to compare points of view and especially to know what happens. ”
