This corresponds to the idea of making TV5 broadcasting universal designed by the Linguistic Pact, which was signed by Armenia in 2012. TV5 airs programs and stories from all over the Francophone world, and it is the TV operator of the International Organization of Francophone and its member states. In this regard TV5Monde is an Armenian TV channel too, and will provide wide coverage for the Francophone Summit that will take place in Yerevan this October. We express our gratitude to "Rostelecom" Armenia for the initiative and welcome this step, which is aimed at the general, free and long-term broadcasting of TV5Monde in Armenia”,- noted French Ambassador to Armenia, Jonathan Lacote.

"As an Armenian company we highlight the importance of holding Francophone Summit in Armenia and we express our support by including French language TV channels, among them the official channel of the International Organization of Francophone - TV5Monde, in TV channel list. It is worth mentioning that it has been available to all "Rostelecom" tariff plan subscribers since February. Broadcasting of foreign language TV channels via our Smart TV highly contributes to raising public awareness and educating. Considering the great demand, from 2013 onwards we have included France 24 in our channel list, and from the half of 2017 TV5Monde as well. Our customers have the opportunity to watch TV channels via our Smart TV not only in Armenian, but also in eight more languages, such as Russian, English, French, German, Polish, Arabic, Italian, Turkish. Mentioned content was designed in accordance with our customers’ needs and recommendations, and we will keep updating this list periodically”, -said the CEO of "Rostelecom" Armenia, Hayk Faramazyan.
