La Chaine Sud (The Southern Channel) has started on 11.919 V inside the Mediaset
package with parameters: Video PID 0203, Audio PID 02A8.
La Chaine Sud is broadcast by satellite and is the first real answer of the South to
the Northern-Southern exchanges. Through it you will at last be able to see the real
face of Africa, the Indian Ocean and Caribbean, a creative face coloured by a rich and
diverse culture. It is intended as much for the many communities coming from these
regions as for the European public.

will broadcast English and Portuguese programmes.

ginal programmes to its viewers during 6 hours a day, starting from 5.30 p.m. These
