France Télévisions secures broadcasting rights for Paris 2024

Paris 2024 has awarded France Télévisions the national broadcasting rights to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games from 28 August to 8 September 2024.


As part of the agreement, Paris 2024 has awarded France Télévisions with exclusive French audio-visual and digital rights to the 2024 Paralympic Games, meaning the broadcaster has secured the broadcasting rights for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games.


This acquisition completes France Télévisions’ unique and free-to-air sports offering for all and reinforces the status of France’s leading media organisation as the domestic broadcaster of the Games.


A decisive agreement to promote the first Summer Paralympic Games to be held in France, Paris 2024’s ambition is to make the Paralympic Games an exceptional sporting experience, with stunning competition venues, such as the Invalides, which will host Para Archery, the Grand Palais which will host Wheelchair Fencing and Para Taekwondo, and the gardens of the Château de Versailles which will host Para Equestrian events.


To ensure maximum coverage of the event, Paris 2024 set ambitious criteria for selecting the national broadcaster for the Paralympic Games.


France Télévisions responded by agreeing to capture and broadcast all of the sports (a first in the history of the Paralympic Games), providing free access to 300 hours of live coverage and exceptional 24-hour exposure on broadcaster’s two premium channels, France 2 and France 3.


Through this agreement, Paris 2024 and France Télévisions wish to highlight the performances and achievements of Paralympic athletes and contribute, through sport, to changing the way society looks at disability.


France Télévisions will also bring Para sports to life over the next two and a half years by following and promoting the careers of French champion Para athletes in two of their magazines Tout Le Sport and Stade 2, as well as on its digital platforms.


“France Télévisions is extremely proud to have been awarded rights to the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. With the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we will be making the entirety of the greatest sporting event of the next few years accessible to all French people. In 2024, both the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be accessible on public broadcast channels, with the same ambition of exposure. I hope that the Paralympic Games and the 30 months that separate us from the event will be an opportunity to promote Para sports in France like never before,” said Delphine Ernotte Cunci, President of France Télévisions.


Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024 said: “In 2024, our country will host the Summer Paralympic Games for the first time in its history. Paris 2024’s ambition is to make this event an unforgettable celebration of sport, worthy of the determination and achievements of Paralympic athletes. As the official broadcaster of the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games in France, France Télévisions will take the media coverage and popular excitement around the event to a new level. With France Télévisions, we share the same desire to showcase Paralympic athletes and in particular the young generation who will help France win in Paris 2024, to make the French public aware of their performances and their unique backgrounds, and to seize this historic opportunity to bring about a lasting change in the way society views disability.”
