CanalSat Africa will launch 25 new channels during the week of 23 March, after having introduced the premium channel A+ last year, Les Echos reports. Some are existing channels such as France 3, which will be marking its return to CanalSat Africa, and Histoire and Ushuaia TV. Others include new channel EdaNetwork, AB's Sciences et Vie and a new version of Lagardere children's channel, called Gulli Africa. One of the new channels is Edan, founded by Senegalese woman Eveline Diatta, who worked for Orange for many years, backed by South Africa's TransAfrica Capital, which invested EUR 5 million.
