NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- TV5MONDE, a 24-hour French-language channel providing updates on the Paris terror attacks, will continue to offer free service to customers through Saturday, according to Frontier Communications.
Frontier customers in Connecticut can tune to Channel 3832 on Frontier TV to watch TV5MONDE without any additional subscription fees, said Paul Quick, Frontier’s senior vice president and general manager
“TV5MONDE contacted us to let us know they wanted the channel available without subscription at a time when our customers are seeking information and the latest updates from their homeland during this time of uncertainty,” Quick said.
TV5MONDE is broadcasting 24/7 without commercial interruption, he said.
In the coming week, many regularly scheduled programs will continue to air, however, the network is focusing extra attention on the developing story out of Paris and will be providing critical news coverage for French-speaking viewers.
