FRANCE 24 has signed a new distribution agreement with SKY NEW ZEALAND, the leading

satellite operator in New Zealand.

FRANCE 24 is an international news channel broadcast 24/7 in English and French and will

bring you the latest news every half hour.

FRANCE 24 will give viewers in-depth analysis of current affairs across the globe through interviews and debates.

The economy, investigative reports, technology, culture and weather forecasts complete the programme schedule.

Starting July 1st, FRANCE 24, French and English versions, will be available throughout New Zealand on channels 100 (English language) and 101 (French language).

With 800 000 subscribers and a penetration rate of 50% across New Zealand, SKY will distribute FRANCE 24 English version as part of the Basic SKY package on channel 100, whilst the French version will be available on channel 101 as part of a premium offer for 7

NZD per month.

"This agreement with SKY confirms our ambition to ensure that all countries in the Asia Pacific zone can get FRANCE 24 as easily and as widely as possible. What is more, it means

that all those who are going to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup will be able to follow

FRANCE 24 in two languages,? said Brice Bertrand, Distribution Director Asia Pacific.

?We are delighted to be able to expand SKY?s already extensive news channels to include

France 24. Having the Francais version of the channel will certainly appeal to those fluent or

aspiring French language speakers. With ten news channels now on offer SKY has a news

offering with the perspective for all tastes?, said Kirsty Way, Corporate Communications, SKY
