The Competition

France 24 is a network destined for a very niche televevision market: the global 24 hour news channel.

A global news channel is distinct from lesser “international” news channels by thier reporting and availiblity on every inhabited continent. This distinguishes them from regional international channels like TeleSUR, EuroNews, or Channel News Asia.

There are really only three truly global competitors to France 24: CNN International, BBC World, and Al Jazeera English.

Watch this blog for upcoming tête à têtes comparing the strengths and weaknesses of each network with France 24.
