La Chaîne Info, or LCI (French: "The News Channel") is the first French all-news TV channel.

History[edit]

LCI was created on June 24, 1994, by Christian Dutoit on behalf of the media group TF1. The launch of LCI was simulcast on TF1. [1]

The broadcast began at 8:30 pm with the live TV news programme presented by Françoise-Marie Morel. The first guest was the CEO of the channel, Étienne Mougeotte.

The channel was also broadcast in Italy on digital terrestrial television from 2004 to December 2006 on Dfree multiplex.

In 2006, the channel's web site appeared twice in the James Bond film Casino Royale, a product placement that the channel says it did not pay for.[citation needed].

On April 5, 2016, the channel became free-to-air and began broadcasting on channel 26 via digital terrestrial television in France.
