The channel will be included in the Freebox’s basic package at position 77. The French version of Djazz.tv offers varied international and French programming. This integration represents a new phase of expansion for the Dutch music channel, launched in 2012 on Canalsat, which has seen an increase in its international distribution since the recent acquisition by Stingray.
Since its launch in 2012, Djazz.tv has earned widespread acclaim in France where jazz is more popular than anywhere else in Europe. The channel’s programming is therefore oriented towards French content and presents performances filmed at jazz clubs and festivals such as the New Morning Jazz Club, the Casino de Paris and Lyons’ Hot Club.
The programming also focuses on French events such as the Fête de la Musique. For several years now, Djazz.tv cameras have been present at international festivals such as Jazz à Vienne, Nancy Jazz Pulsations and Jazz en Baie where they have filmed more than 250 interviews with some of jazz’s biggest names.
Djazz.tv has its own premises in Paris and develops alliances and partnership from a first regional hub (Rhône-Alpes region).
