Stingray Digital Group has announced that its Djazz.tv television channel is now available as part of the Grand Angle bouquet of French pay-TV provider Bouygues Telecom.
As a special introductory offer, Bouygues subscribers will enjoy Djazz.tv free until March 22, 2016.
The French version of Djazz.tv offers varied international and French programming. This integration represents a new phase of expansion for the Dutch channel, launched in 2012 on Canalsat, which has seen an increase in its international distribution since the recent acquisition by Stingray.
Since November 2015, Djazz.tv has been included in the basic package of French Pay-TV provider Free; reaching close to 6 million subscribers. At the time of the transaction, the channel was distributed in 42 countries in Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean.
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 the most renowned 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.
