    I saw this info on Vilay’s blog, but I haven’t checked it out. Thank YOU for the link. I do believe this will be a very good resource.

    I thought I heard on the radio that the Arabic version wasn’t up and running yet – apparently it will start sometime next year, along with Italian and Spanish.

    Here in France, there’s been a lot of talk about whether this is going to become France’s version of Fox News – just another channel of propaganda spitting out what the government wants people to hear.

    Oooh, thanks for that info, Sam.

    Sam,
    The Arabic version seems to be up and running. I will include a link in my original post. I should have done it before but was lazy.

    I don’t know about the Fox news thing. Is it the French that are saying this or the English speaking community? Because, frankly, that makes all the difference. I really don’t think it is like Fox news from what I saw. Go see for yourself before deciding not to watch it. I think they deserve a chance at least.

    I really think it is a great move forward for the world when more countries are able to broadcast another point of view in regard to international news. Up until now we really didn’t have another point of view besides CNN. I hope more countries are able to do the same and I will put a link to thier websites too as I find them.

    Pumpkin, I didn’t say that I wasn’t going to watch it, I only said that”s what I’ve been hearing critics say on French TV. And why does it matter if it’s the English or French speaking community? I don’t really see what difference that makes.

    PS. France already has two 24 hour news channels – BFM TV and i-TELE, both available for free if you have TNT (unlike France 24, that you have to have a cable subscription to watch it if you don’t have internet).

    hey, what happened to the comments I posted yesterday?

  • Pumpkin December 12, 2006, 12:16 am

    But, I don’t have TNT…actually, I don’t know what it is. :)
    I wasn’t saying “watch it!” in a negitive way…sorry if it came across like that. One of the reasons I hate “talking” by typing is that I sometimes come across cross when I don’t mean. I meant just watch it and see if you like it. That is what I am going to do.

    For some reason your comments get trapped in my spam catcher. When I read your comment that posted…don’t ask me why it did and the others didn’t, I went straight to the spam and there your comments were! It has happened before with yours and a few other peoples. However, again, it doesn’t happen all the time. If it continues I will have to find another spam catcher.

    Oh, how weird! Maybe your blog doesn’t like me *S*.

    TNT is French Digital Television, it came out last year and you need to have a ~40€ box to hook up to your TV to be able to watch it. But once you do, you get 18 free digital channels – the five regular ones, plus a bunch of others (cartoon channel, the two news channels I mentioned, music, etc).

  • Pumpkin December 13, 2006, 12:04 am

    Samantha,
    It may be the S for smile. The last comment you made was being held as spam like the others.

    The thing about France 24 is that people like me who are not going to have French cable can watch a free French international news station 24 hours a day and it is live. That is pretty cool.
