Canal J

, a Lagardère group channel, directed by Claude-Yves Robin, has joined Lagardère Active Publicité.
Created in 1985, Canal J is the leading special-interest channel for children. It was the first in the market and thus benefits from outstanding visibility on cable and satellite. More than three million French families now receive Canal J via CanalSatellite and the cable networks. .

A pioneer and ground-breaking channel, Canal J has innovated year after year and is now the leading children’s cable and satellite channel with an 11.6% share of 4-14 year-old audiences (and over three weeks reaches 46.1% of 4-14 year-old cable and satellite television viewers). Canal J’s ambitious programming policy and determination to stay close to children’s centers of interest have given Canal J the means to broadcast what children want to see: programs, cartoons, series and films, with an important place given to exclusive broadcasts and co-productions of flagship programs such as Titeuf, the hero for the 7-12 age group, specially adapted for TV and which will be launched as a world exclusive on Canal J on April 4, 2001.

Philippe Pignol, Assistant General Manager of the Television and Internet division, has welcomed this new contract which will enhance and strengthen Lagardère Active Publicité’s position in special-interest channels. The contract is effective as from March 19, 2001.
