HistoryEdit

Following the call of applications of the CSA for the launch of six new channels on the DTT, Groupe M6 presented three projects of channels : 6ter, M6 Boutique & Co and Hexa. On March 27, the CSA chose 6ter to be part of the 6 new channels to be launched on December 12, 2012, in HDTV (1080i). In 2022, the channel would be sold to Altice alongside TFX (owned by TF1 Group).

Like its sisters M6 and W9, 6ter have a Swiss subfeed, which air in Swiss providers and in free-to-air on satellite.

ProgrammingEdit

6ter's programming is family-oriented. 6ter shows magazines, documentaries, educational programs, along with children programmes, series and movies.

Until June 2016, 6ter had a weekday children morning block named Trop Toon. Since then, a few cartoons have sometimes been broadcast, notably Tintin.
