I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Africanews (styled as africanews) is a 24/7 pan-African multilingual news network located in Lyon, France previously headquartered in Pointe-Noire, Republic of the Congo. The news channel began broadcasting online, and via TV and satellite on 20 April 2016.[1] The newsroom has 30 journalists and around 55 technical staffers.[citation needed]


Like its sister channel Euronews, Africanews runs news and weather summaries every half-hour.


Currently, the programs are broadcast in both English and French - most on-screen graphics and captions are bilingual. In 2016, the channel planned to expand and accommodate most of the continents' population and roll out Swahili, Arabic, Dutch/Afrikaans, Spanish and Portuguese content soon.[2]


Availability of Africanews via cable and satellite

The channel currently is broadcast in 33 sub-Saharan countries and is accessible to 7.3 million homes via satellite and digital terrestrial television networks.[3] Africanews is available in the UK, along with a number of other international news channels, via online video subscription service NewsPlayer+ [4] and alongside Euronews on Freeview channel 271 via the Channelbox free streaming service.[5]
