Theatre plays, concerts, festivals, operas, ballets, documentaries, urban creations, humour, museums... In early February 2021, France Télévisions launched the short-lived Culturebox channel dedicated to all arts. It is accessible free of charge on channel 19 of the TNT and on the platform Ask for the programme!

As cultural venues are closed, France Télévisions launches Culturebox to give the best possible exhibition to all the arts and to allow artists to keep the link with their audience. The chain will disappear with their reopening.
