France 24 to launch in India

The competition in the television news segment for world affairs is set to get tougher in India with the government granting a broadcasting licence to the state-run France 24 TV channel, dubbed the French answer to the BBC and CNN, United News of India reported.

France 24 is expected to be available on TV and even on mobile phone screens. The broadcasting licence to commercially operate in India was given to the channel last week, France 24 Chief Operating Officer Christine Ockrent said this week. We believe we can bring to India something the BBC and CNN dont, our channel is another way to talk about world affairs, Ms Ockrent said.

The AsiaSat 5 satellite, which broadcasts France 24 service in Asia, will be used for India transmission. The channel currently broadcasts in Asia to Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia and South Korea. We are trying to get into Singapore, Ms Ockrent said.
