The six channels are HD1, L’Equipe 21, 6Ter, Numéro 23, RMC Découverte and Chérie 25.
If you have television via satellite, cable or the internet then the six channels are accessible now.
However, if you receive digital television through an antenna and a set-up box then the channels are only available to around 25% of the population, covering Ile de France (except western areas), Bouches du Rhône, Gironde, Aube, Yonne, areas of the Alpes de Haute Provence, the Var, the Vaucluse, the Haute Marne and a large area of the Pyrénées Atlantiques.
Whether the six new channels are any good, well I'll leave that up to you to decide.
