BFM TV now claims leadership among the French news channels on France’s DTT platform. After a complete relaunch of the channel in June, its viewing share was 1% in the month of July, surpassing i>Télé with 0.8%. So far, similar results have not been reached on the DTH platform, “because there are too many obstacles to find us on satellite,” according to CEO Alain Weill. On satellite, the EPG channel numbering is controlled by Canal Satellite Numérique, which also owns the i>Télé news channel.
