The Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will be watched exclusively on France Télévisions. The organizing committee awarded, on Tuesday January 18, the French exclusivity of the audiovisual and digital rights of the Paralympic Games (August 28-September 8, 2024) to the antennas of France Télévisions, in addition to the Olympic Games.

“Obtaining the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games is a source of immense pride for France Télévisions, said Delphine Ernotte Cunci, president of France Télévisions. We have been a partner of the Paralympic Games for many years and we wanted to continue this partnership for the Paris Games, at home.”

All Paralympic Games events will be fully captured and fully broadcast, “even the events that the IOC had not planned to capture”, underlined the president of France Télévisions, a first in the history of the competition. In total, 300 hours of live will be broadcast on France 2 and France 3, compared to 100 hours during the Tokyo Games, and accessible 24 hours a day on France.tv.

“These Games are going to have a huge resonance in France. With the Olympic Games, France Télévisions makes accessible to all French people the entirety of the biggest sporting event of the coming years”, said Delphine Ernotte Cunci, who promises “a rise in media coverage up to the Paralympics. We will shine a light on para-athletes, follow their routes, tell their journeys and their life stories.”

“With this major public service audiovisual group, we share the same desire to highlight Paralympic athletes, (…) and to seize this historic opportunity to permanently change society’s view of disability”, for his part declared the president of Paris 2024, Tony Estanguet.
