Paris 2024 has awarded the rights to both the Olympic and Paralympic Games to France Télévisions.
The broadcaster has committed to airing 300 hours of live coverage on its free-to-air channels during the Paralympics.
It has also agreed to filming and broadcasting all of the sports featured at the Paralympics – a first for the event.
Delphine Ernotte Cunci, president of France Télévisions said: “France Télévisions is extremely proud to have been awarded rights to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. With the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we will be making the entirety of the greatest sporting event of the next few years accessible to all French people.
“In 2024, both the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be accessible on public broadcast channels, with the same ambition of exposure. I hope that the Paralympic Games and the 30 months that separate us from the event will be an opportunity to promote para sports in France like never before.”
Tony Estanguet, president of Paris 2024 added: “In 2024, our country will host the Summer Paralympic Games for the first time in its history. As the official broadcaster of the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games in France, France Télévisions will take the media coverage and popular excitement around the event to a new level.”
