TV5MONDE (French pronunciation: [te ve sɛ̃k mɔ̃d]; formerly known as TV5) is a global television network, broadcasting several channels of French language programming. It is an approved participant member of the European Broadcasting Union.[1]



TV5 started in 1 January 1984 and was under the management of Serge Adda until November 2004; the new director, named on 6 April 2005 is Jean-Jacques Aillagon, former French Minister for Culture and Communication. The present Director-General is Marie-Christine Saragosse.

In January 1992 TV5 underwent a major overhaul including re-branding as "TV5MONDE" to stress its focus as a global network ("Monde" is French for "World"). Also part of the changes are a new schedule and new program line-up. Since 1993, "TV5 Monde" is part of the channel's corporate name. Its Canadian operations are branded "TV5 Québec Canada", however, though the shorter version TV5 is also used.

TV5MONDE claims to be one of the top three most available global television network available around the world with CNN and MTV.(source: TV5 web page in French)


Most of its content is taken from mainstream networks in the French-speaking world, notably France Télévisions from France, RTBF from Belgium, RTS from Switzerland, and the Radio-Canada and TVA networks in Canada. In addition to international news, TV5MONDE broadcasts Ligue 1, films and music magazines.


The number "5" in the name is the number of founding networks: Télévision Française 1 (TF1), Antenne 2 (France2), FR 3 (France 3), TSR (RTS Un) and RTBF (La Une). Today, the partnership making up the TV5MONDE consortium are France Télévisions, Arte France, Institut national de l'audiovisuel, Radio-Canada, Télé-Québec. This consortium owns 51% of the service, while the other 49% is owned by Société de l'audiovisuel extérieur de la France, a holding company that manages France's international broadcasting services.


As of 2006, eight editions are being transmitted:

(*) TV5MONDE États-Unis has certain programs subtitled in English. Particularly a few of the News Journals and most movies are subtitled in English language. It is unusual to watch a French movie without English language subtitles on TV5MONDE États-Unis. (**) TV5 Québec Canada is produced in Montreal, the other seven channels from Paris under the name TV5MONDE.


  Network availability


TV5MONDE FBS and TV5MONDE Europe are Free-To-Air.

  North America

TV5MONDE is not Free-To-Air in North America. In North America, other channels have taken up the task to offer programming with some shows in the French language. Those channels are: Canal Algerie and ORTM (Mali). Those channels can be found on satellite Galaxy 19 (97W).

  • In the United States, TV5MONDE is one of several foreign-language premium channels offered by International Networks. It cannot be purchased without a subscription to additional unrelated channels; Dish Network, AT&T U-verse, and Verizon FiOS allow the addition of TV5MONDE as an a la carte selection for $9.99 a month. Purportedly due to underfunding, TV5MONDE cannot yet offer accurate advance scheduling or on-time programming, but progress is being made in these fronts.
  • TV5 Québec Canada is a French Canadian version of TV5MONDE. It offers largely the same programming schedule, with the exception that programming from Radio-Canada, which is already available across Canada, is replaced with content from the provincial educational networks Télé-Québec and TFO. As with TV5MONDE, TV5 Québec Canada is also a cooperative effort, though involving French Canadian networks and producers.
  • In Mexico and most countries of Central America and The Caribbean, TV5MONDE is shown on satellite service SKY México on Channel 277.

  South America

TV5MONDE is not Free-To-Air in South America.

  Asia, Australia and New Zealand

In India, Zee Network provides this channel for its Dish Network DTH services subscribers. Also, many others like Hathway cable TV and local cable TV operators offer TV5Monde free of cost. The channel is also available in Japan on Fuji Television platform and Television New Zealand in New Zealand.

The English word games are:

○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
