CMTV starts Thursday 6 July 2017 broadcasts to France, through Orange, one of the biggest operators of French cable television.
Viewers in France will be able to follow the same broadcast as the Portuguese viewers who follow the channel, either through MEO or through NOS.
With the expansion of broadcasts to France, CMTV takes another step towards internationalisation.
The broadcasts started in Canada on July 1, and the channel has already transmitted to Angola and Mozambique.
In Portugal, CMTV is the absolute leading channel in cable television.
This news item is interesting. Angola and Mozambique speak Portuguese, dating back to when Portugal had an overseas empire.
Quite why viewers in non-Portguese-speaking countries such as France or Canada should be following CMTV is beyond me. It is not clear if France is going to get reports in French, or they will literally be the same as those broadcast in Portugal via MEO and NOS.
Here is a piccy from the ‘news’ item that amused me. As far as I can tell, the relevant part says ‘Keep Calm – ask for paradise’.
