Réseau de l'information (RDI) is a Canadian
French language cable television newschannel operated by CBC/Radio-Canada. RDI began broadcasting on January 1, 1995and is considered the French-language equivalent of CBC Newsworld, also owned by the CBC.
RDI has the resources of information from the
Radio-Canada/ Canadian Broadcasting Corporation(CBC) group:
* 400 journalists
* ten newsrooms in the Information centre in
* 30 bureaus across Canada, and 7 foreign bureaus
RDI is distributed on basic cable and satellite television to 9.8 million homes, including 2 million in Quebec and seen each week by half-million English viewers.
RDI provides news, business, weather and sports information on
Air Canada's inflight entertainment.
RDI broadcasts full local, national and international newscasts at the top of each hour and headlines every half hour from the newsroom of La Maison de Radio-Canada in
Montrealand Quebec City. "Le Téléjournal Midi" is broadcast each weekday at 12pm and the main evening news bulletin "Le Téléjournal/Le Point" every evening live at 9:00 p.m. (eastern). These bulletins are also seen on the main French-language television network, Télévision de Radio-Canada. The channel covers big events live and also broadcasts regional news in the form of " Le TéléjournalMontréal" and "Le Téléjournal Atlantique".
The channel also broadcasts factual programs in the form of food program "L'épicerie", current affairs in "Les Grand Reportages" (The Big Reports), science in "Decouverte" (Discovery) and "Tout le Monde en Parlait" - a look back at past culture seen through the eyes of current events. During the weekend there is a greater amount of these programs, much in the same format as its
English-languagecounterpart, CBC Newsworld.
