Watch L'Enôrme TV live from France
L'Énorme, first called L'Enorme TV (sometimes written L'Enôrme TV ) and then Enorme TV, is a French private television channel launched on December 7, 2011, belonging to LCTVI.
The chain had originally stopped broadcasting December 31, 2016.
However, the LCTVI group, owner of the channel, announced that it is in talks with two potential buyers who could buy the channel and therefore allow it to continue broadcasting its programs. Until an agreement is reached with a buyer, the original content produced by the channel is after December 31, 2016, broadcast exclusively through the Facebook page of channel 1 and Freebox TV.
The ambitions of L'Enôrme TV
Leaning on three pillars - laughter, rock, and rap - the channel visible on channel 155 of the SFR box will integrate the offer of other bouquets this year.

Who first launched the idea? We no longer know, and whatever matters. In the excitement and the pre-filming pressure, the main thing is that it bounced off the dark and tagged walls of the studio and that it was seized in flight. Thus, on an afternoon in February, under the pale glow of winter sun, Yves Jamait and the group Les Fatals Picards met in the street, to sing and beg. Show and atmosphere guaranteed, that day, by the Saint-Martin canal.
Like a little air of nostalgia for the singer too. After all, didn't Yves Jamait start his career on the street? Les Fatals improvised challenge when debottled: check if the artist would still be able to provide his food on the guitar. Yes or no?
You may know this on March 9, if you watch the program "La vie en rock" broadcast on L'Enôrme TV. Do not look: the channel in question is currently only available on the SFR box, channel 155. But it is intended to be quickly installed on other bouquets this year. Launched on December 7, 2011, it is based on a three-R concept: laughter, rock, and rap. Ambitious, not lacking in means ( read below ), the channel broadcasts 24 hours a day, with no less than 5:30 hours of fresh programs each day. 85% of the programs are produced, shot, edited, broadcast from rue Lucien-Sampaix, close to the Saint-Martin canal, in the 10 districts of Paris. A large showcase with the sound system allows passers-by to attend the broadcasts and to see the very underground decorations of the studios which do not contrast with the atmosphere of the district.
HUMOR AND MUSIC
On the program of channel 155 of the SFR box: home-made around two favorite themes, humor and music. With this credo that, to "exist in the TV universe, it is necessary to build a very strong identity", specifies Mohamed Hadji, director of communication of the channel. Thus, every Thursday evening, L'Enôrme TV devotes its antenna to metal music, which finds a unique opportunity to express itself on the small screen.
According to the channel, it is one of the "extremely efficient boxes" of the week, just like the Bollywood movie night. On the menu, again, rap with Big Ali, "A dose of 2 metal" with Stéphane Buriez, leader of Loublast, group of the French thrash scene, "C de l'air", a two-minute daily meeting in France who "does not get up", or "Not seen on the Net", with, among others, Jenny Del Pino, former presenter of "Morning Live" on M6 ...
And of course "La Vie en rock" where, every fortnight, Les Fatals Picards dress a representative of French song in rock. An explosive mix of living, talk, and improvisation on occasion. Yves Jamait, Julie Zenatti, or Dave, among others, answered the call of this program like no other. "I've been wanting to do this for a long time, " says Jean-Marc Sauvagnargues, drummer for the Fatals. "Bring in people who are not necessarily from the world of rock and make them rock. And also invite groups and emerging singers that you never see on TV."
"Those who accompany us today are attracted to the UFO side, the precursor of the chain, completes Mohamed Hadji. They also appreciate the freedom and flexibility they have here."
Like others, Yves Jamait had never heard of L'Enôrme TV. However, he did not hesitate to come. "I like what's going on here. I had 25 brooms in the 1980s when Canal, M6, and free radios arrived. We must have been a bit stupid because we thought that with the multiplicity of channels we were really going to have music channels. In fact, hoping for free radios and channels, we got photocopiers that all always work the same thing. It feels good to see a channel that does something other than copying others. " A chain that counts on its outsized side to thrive on ADSL networks already well supplied.
