The US outlet of France-based TV5Monde announced a companywide deal with Cablevision to begin airing this month on the entire Cablevision cable footprint as Channel 267.

TVBR/RBR observation: Note to Kevin Martin – this is one of the channels that might have a very hard time if you are successful in your efforts to institute a la carte.
