France Vingt Quatre

I see the new France 24 channel has a promo up before the launch on December 6th. Interesting that some of the tags are BBC and Al-Jazeera - probably hoping that people searching for video from those stations will bump into this one. All the video will be posted on line it seems. France 24 has been the first to use the blogging community for its launch - but I am surprised they haven't launched a question or an issue for the blogosphere to argue about. Unless you're in the biz, you're not that interested in the technology. I'd like to know how France 24 will be different from TV5, CFI - apart from doing stories in English and Arabic. I also wonder whether there will be duplication with Euronews.
