The French government has confirmed that the public broadcasting channel dedicated to the country's overseas territories, France Ô, is to close later this month. The channel, which itself replaced RFO Sat, was created in 2005 by public broadcaster France Télévisions with the aim of showcasing programmes and culture from France's far-flung overseas territories in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Pacific to the rest of the country. It was also seen as providing an important link between the populations in those overseas lands and the people living in Metropolitan France, including former overseas residents.
