Pink TV is Europe's second gay satellite channel (after Italy's GAY.tv), started in France on 25 October 2004, it costs €9 per month, and is mostly funded by TF1 and Canal Plus, terrestrial channels in France. It is now possible to access Pink TV via satellite, cable and DSL providers. Highlights include Queer as Folk, as well as talkshows (including So Graham Norton). There is an X-rated film four times a week after midnight, and the channel broadcasts 24 hours per day.

From fall 2007, due to financial problems, Pink TV only airs two hours of free and unscrambled programmes a day (from 10pm to 12 midnight, mostly reruns at the moment) and then switches to Pink X, its premium X-rated counterpart from 12 midnight (€9 per month).
