    Starting September 1 there will be a new news channel in France dubbed FranceInfo. franceinfo: is owned by France Télévisions, Radio France, France Médias Monde, Institut national de l'audiovisuel.

    I don't speak French but here's the channel's website. The channels slogan translated into English is "Colon, open info".

    Here's a link to the YouTube live stream which is nothing but a barker channel. Not sure if it will be geoblocked when it launches.



    And a behind the scenes reel:

    Yes and I think France Info (radio) is pretty cool. Waiting to see what franceinfo: will do and what their format and schedule is like.

    Sorry to double post, but here's what I've learned about the channel so far...

    The morning program is "6 : 09h30" meaning that its from 6:00-9:30am, which must mean that franceinfo's broadcast day starts at 6:00am Paris time/12:00 Midnight Washington time.
    France 24 (French) takes over during the overnight hours from 12:00 Midnight-6:00am.

    franceinfo - deux points ouvrez l'info. TNT Canal 27.
