France 24’s budget

August 19, 2006 at 4:22 pm | Posted in France 24, General Information | 7 Comments

France 24 has raised its annual budget to 80 million Euros because of its plans to broadcast over two channels: one in French, the other in English.

Initial plans was for the French government to allocate 70 millions for the new international news network.

Comparatively, CNN’s budget is 650 million Euros, however, BBC World works with only 70 million Euros.

In the case of France 24, 2.2 million will be used to buy images from other networks for F24’s newscast. As for the “shows,” the network will have 2.6 million Euros available every year.

The French international news channel also hopes to attract funds from advertisers. However, the chairman of the board of directors expects only three million Euros in France 24’s first year.

  1. I’m not an expert, but I wouldn’t be surprised if BBC World’s budget was actually a fair bit bigger if you include that of BBC News, which actually performs the newsgathering and reporting. I would assume that the BBC World budget itself is just for the studios and staff in London, plus satellite space.

  2. Well, if you take into consideration that the news on BBC World represents only a small part of its programming, I don’t think France 24 will be much different in that matter. France 24 will also use images from its shareholders (TF1 and France Televisions) but will also enter in deals with other French news gatherers such as RFI, AITV and Agence France Presse, just like BBC World uses BBC News for its news. The rest of the budget is used for other programming.
