Global television news network RT has expanded its partnership with Yahlive, the Abu Dhabi-based satellite joint venture between SES and the UAE satellite company Yahsat, by introducing RT France HD to French speakers in the MENA region via Yahlive’s MENA beam.
For the next three years, RT France HD will be added to Yahlive’s existing bouquet of TV channels, and will reach more than 10 million households across Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco. A long-term partner of Yahlive, RT renewed its agreement with Yahlive in 2018 to continue broadcasting RT International HD & RT Arabic HD.
“We are happy to arrive on Yahlive, and contribute to the diversity of their offer. 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 ” said Xenia Fedorova, President of RT France.
