Change in cinema package :
- At its launch in 1996, the cinema package of AB Groupe comprised five channels: Ciné Palace, Rire (comedies), Romance (sentimental films), Polar (crime and suspense films) and Action
- Due to the repackaging of the cinema package in September 2002, the cinema package formerly known as CINEBOX now has new channels named Ciné Box, Ciné comic (formerly Rire), Ciné Polar (formerly Polar) and Ciné Fx.
- Today, Ciné Fx and Ciné Polar are no longer available.
At the same time as this was taking place, the group purchased the cinema channel Action in 1996.
At the heart of the programming are the big names in classic films noirs, notably the first works of Alfred Hitchcock.
