euronews added to MultiChoice's DStv Family and DStv Compact bouquets makes the 24-hour news channel available in millions more homes.

euronews (DStv 414) is joining MultiChoice's DStv Family and DStv Compact bouquets from tomorrow, Tuesday 9 April.

The European news channel started on DStv's channel line-up seven years ago, but only as part of the DStv Premium bouquet. Now euronews will become available in millions more pay-TV households in South Africa from tomorrow.

The first carriage agreement for euronews on MultiChoice's DStv was concluded by the international distributor Thema.

"I am proud to announce this new proof of confidence by MultiChoice," says Arnaud Verlhac, the deputy director for worldwide distribution at euronews in a statement.

"Over the last seven years we have been working closer and closer together. The consequence of this collaboration is a substantial increase of our presence in South Africa, Africa's leading television market."
