Good news for the public television channel. In a message posted on Twitter, Emmanuel Macron expressed his wish, Tuesday, May 18, to see France 4, which was to close in August, “[poursuivre] his mission” around youth and education. “Animation and education channel, France 4 has taken a special place in homes, especially since the pandemic. I hope that it will continue its mission around two axes: youth during the day, culture in the evening, to extend the success of the Culturebox experience “, argued the head of state.

According to the Elysee, it is a question of maintaining the broadcasting of the channel on the hertzian network, which currently occupies channel 14.

The government initially planned to shut down France 4 in the summer of 2020 in favor of 100% digital programs and for the sake of savings for France Télévisions. But he had granted a one-year reprieve to the chain, acclaimed for its educational programs during the closure of schools during the first confinement in spring 2020.

At the beginning of May, around forty senators from all sides called on deputies to “to confirm” an amendment voted by the upper house to perpetuate the youth channel, in a column published in Sunday Newspaper.
