History

TF6 was founded in December 2000 by M6 and TF1 when they decided to bring closer their two competitor family projects channels on the cable and satellite service TPS, of which they are the two co-shareholders. This fusion led the two groups to create a common company gathering 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 head offices and to propose a richer offer.
