Thanks a lot Ron for letting me know about France24, a new 24 hour French news channel which will broadcast from December 6. Chirac wants it to be a "French CNN", which is quite an exciting idea, but… there doesn’t seem to be much French in its promotional video. It appears that it will be broadcast on two channels, one in French and the other one in English and French. To be continued…

Well, France24 is live in French, in English and in Arabic, and I’m impressed so far.
