Three international French channels, France 24, RFI and Monte Carlo Doualiya (MCD), are now on Google TV.
The three channels offer a complete trilingual offer, in English, French and Arabic. The launch comes at the same time as Google TV is launched on the French market.
Building on its application for connected TVs, the new France 24 interface for Google TV allows all users to get the three versions of the channel live, all the programmes on demand in three languages, as well as the latest articles published on the channel’s website in real time.
In its Arabic version, the service includes live streaming of Monte Carlo Douliya radio and references all the articles from the websites of both media.
For RFI, the new service allows the viewer to access the live signals of both the World and African broadcasts in French, as well as all the complete catalogue of the station programmes on demand. In addition, all the articles published on the station’s website, RFI.fr , are available in real time.
Frederic Bonnard, head of new media department for France 24, RFI and MCD, said in a statement:“The AEF media have always been forerunners in new media and we are pleased and proud that our offer will be available on Google TV the day of its launch in France. This is an important step to increase our influence in the world and reach new audiences.”
