October 10, 2014 | By francecanadaculture Ottawa

Since October 7th, international 24-hour news chanel France 24 is broadcasted in Quebec, included in Videotron TV package. Videotron is affiliated to Québecor firm.

France 24 is part of France Médias Monde company. The chanel is available in French for free through Videotron basic package, that gathers more than 1.5 millions of subscribers. From January 15th, 2015, the chanel will be integrated into one of Vidéotron’s subscription plans.

"A complementary chanel"

"France 24 is a complementary chanel for Québec", told President of France Médias Monde Marie-Christine Saragosse. Besides the 24-hour new chanel RDI (CBC Radio-Canada), France 24 offers international news on a multicultural market.

Both networks are not competitors, since cooperations and contents sharing between France Médias Monde and Radio-Canada could be developed.

600.000 Canadian visitors per month on France 24 website

The agreement between France 24 and Vidéotron was natural, as that company is already broadcasting RFI radio in Quebec for all its languages.

France 24 website receives 600.000 Canadian visitors every month, 400.000 of whom visit websites’s French version. 370.000 Canadian people visit RFI website every month.
