Altice France issued a statement acknowledging that its BFM Business TV channel is no longer available on Free's IPTV platform. Freebox TV customers have also lost access to the replay services of all four channels (BFM Business, BFM TV, RMC Decouverte and RMC Story) at the centre of the ongoing dispute between the two partners over distribution fees. BFM Business is the only one of these channels that is not available on a free-to-air basis over DTT.
