RT has launched RT France HD in the MENA region, giving French speakers across Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco access to the news channel.
The three-year partnership with Abu Dhabi-based Yahlive will allow RT France HD to reach more than 10 million households in the Middle East, while continuing to broadcast RT International HD and RT Arabic HD.
“We are happy to arrive on Yahlive, and contribute to the diversity of their offer,” said RT France president Xenia Fedorova. “This expanded distribution positions us even more as the reference information channel that offers the French-speaking audiences in the region with a wide range of stories and different perspectives on the news.”
Yahlive COO Ammar Baranbo added: “We are excited to extend our long-term partnership and cooperation with RT and look forward to continuing to bring key regional and international stories to our audiences in the Middle East and North Africa.
“This partnership is a reflection of the technical excellence provided by Yahsat’s Al Yah1 satellite which allows us to deliver high-quality content based on our customer’s transmission needs, with the best possible signal quality.”
