I'm quite interested to see how all of this pans out. In general, I do not believe in massive government sponsorship to launch a commercial enterprise but I also like the idea of something different. Chirac has been pushing for France24 for over 25 years and it is due to start broadcasting this evening online and on cable/satellite tomorrow. The initial rollout includes broadcasts in both French and English and will later include Arabic and Spanish. The goal of the network is to produce a view that is different from the Anglo-American and Arabic stations that currently dominate out there.

As long as they avoid the corporate CEO, Hollywood and luxury brand/wannabe worshiping that CNN cranks out, I'll at least give it a try. Since it will broadcast online, it should be easy enough to view.
