HistoryEdit

TF6 was founded in December 2000 by M6 and TF1 when they decided to bring closer their two competitor family project channels on the satellite service TPS, of which they are the two co-shareholders. This merger led the two groups to create a common company integrating TF6 and SerieClub and whose two groups are shareholders with 50%. That allows the new channel to make use of series and cinema catalogues of its two owners and to propose a richer offer. On April 24, 2014, TF1 and M6 announced the final closure of TF6 due to low audiences since 2009,[2] The channel ceased broadcasting on December 31, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. using the song Love Me Again to close broadcasting. SerieClub replaced TF6 on Canalsat Caraïbes.[3]
