A unique position on the broadcasting scene

An integral part of France Télévisions since 2 August 2000, France 5 benefits from the group's resources while maintaining its specific editorial positioning.

France 5 is a content-oriented television company committed to broadcasting and sharing knowledge. This role has been expanded with the arrival of digital terrestrial television and 24-hour broadcasting, the 31th of March 2005.

France 5 occupies a unique position on the broadcasting scene. Its primary role is to foster the sharing of knowledge and thus contribute to social and occupational mobility.

France 5 is the leading French broadcaster of documentaries and seeks to arouse and nurture the interest of all audiences.

This spirit underpins all its programmes: magazines, programmes for children and parents and programmes on employment, the economy, science, the arts, history and the media. To convey this variety of content, France 5 has already factored in the expansion of digital television.

Today, it is positioning itself as the "network of networks" : an analogue daytime channel, a digital cable and satellite channel, an Internet network, a bank of programmes and services and a digital terrestrial network.
