Dear all,

To face with the scale of the coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19), described as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, TV5MONDE is striving to ensure a balance between working situations with controlled health conditions and maintaining our activity and our international public service missions.  With this in mind, our CEO, Mr. Yves Bigot, has taken the particularly difficult decision to suspend since Tuesday 17th, March and until further notice, all of the TV5MONDE productions (including news programmes).
 
This decision was taken following the French Government's directives, taking into account the rapidly worsening health situation not only in France but also in Europe and throughout the world. The objective is to ensure the right level of protection for our teams, but also to limit the spread of the virus through containment measures. So, except made for the teams that are essential to the company continued activity, all the employees at the Paris headquarters and throughout the world is now teleworking. They are, therefore, unfortunately not able to provide you with the usual level of service.
 
The consequences of these various measures are as follows:
From Tuesday, March 17th 2020 at 1 pm (Hong Kong time) until at least April 3rd, the programming of the 2 channels: TV5MONDE Asia and TV5MONDE Pacific will be grouped into a single channel. And it is our regret to not be able to provide all languages subtitles.
 
The lifestyle channel, TV5MONDE Style, should continue to operate as usual until further notice, with some shortcomings in terms of subtitles.
 
We thank you for your understanding and support and remain at your disposal when needed.
We hope that the mobilisation of all will allow us to return to a normalised situation in a safe and quick way.
 
Regards,
The Asia-Pacific Team
