Euronews has joined the CanalSat Evasion package of the satellite platform available in more than 20 countries of the African continent.
Euronews was already part of the Prestige package of the CANALSAT bouquet since 2003, but is now included in the “Evasion” package, thereby tripling the number of potential viewers. Evasion is available in more than 20 countries in central and western Africa.
Arnaud Verlhac, deputy director worldwide distribution at Euronews, said: “Sub-Saharan Africa is the second largest market for Euronews, after Europe. In a geographic zone which attracts all the big news media, Euronews enjoys a strong position because of its unique perspective on world news and thanks to its French, English and Portuguese services which speak to audiences in the three main European languages of Africa. We are especially delighted by the show of confidence on the part of Canal+ Africa, enabling Euronews to triple its distribution in Sub-Saharan Africa.”
Euronews is distributed across the entire Sub-Saharan continent, in all French, English and Portuguese-speaking countries.
With this new agreement between Euronews and Canal+ Africa, the channel will reach more than 20 million homes in the Sub-Saharan region.
