Encyclopédia (Stylized ENCYCLO) is a French television channel dedicated to encyclopedic knowledge.

History of the channel

Encyclopédia was launched in 1996 with the launch of the AB Sat satellite package as a documentary channel dedicated to encyclopedic knowledge, but mostly on science and engineering, notably medicine and modern inventions.

After rumours of the sale of the channel by AB Groupe at the start of 2006, it became part of a group of channels exclusively shown on CanalSat.

Its main rival is Planète.


Encyclopédia is owned by AB Sat SA and has a budget of €24 million, provided 100% by AB Group.


Its programmes consist of documentaries based on discovery, knowledge, and all scientific disciplines (ecology, medical science, astronomy, etc.).

  • Au cœur de la science : weekly magazine presented by Michel Chevalet exploring one scientific theme in the news.


Encyclopédia was originally shown only on AB Sat, but is now available through a contract on French and Swiss cable networks, on the Nouveau Canalsat satellite package, and through AB Groupe, the channel is available on the major ADSL packages.
