The ratings, published by Nielsen, put France 24 behind CNN and the BBC, but in front of Al-Jazeera. CNN received 26 million visits over the same period, and the BBC had 13.6 million visitors.
France 24 is also the most visited International news network website in France, third in the UK and Germany, and fourth in the US.
France 24 has signed an agreement with the French telecommunication giant Orange.
According to the terms of the agreement, France 24 will be available on all Orange ADSL-TV packages in Spain, Poland, Senegal and Maurice Island. The deal will be expanded to other countries in the future.
Orange is available across the rest of Europe such as in the UK.
