History

M6 headquarters, 89 avenue Charles-de-Gaulle in Neuilly-sur-Seine

M6 launched on 1 March 1987 at 11:15 am CET taking the place of TV6 France.[]

M6's current[when?] on-air brand image suggests that it tailors its service to teenagers and young-adult demographics. Its current programs lineup include:

In 2001, M6 became the first national French television network to broadcast reality programming. Its first program of this genre was Loft Story, and was highly watched. The president of TF1 at the time, Étienne Mougeotte, promised that TF1 would never air any reality programming. However, several months later, TF1 signed a contract with Endemol to air such programming. Endemol is the same company that created Loft Story for M6.

M6 is one of the only television services in France to have science-fiction programming as part of its regular schedule. Most supernatural dramas were shown on Saturday nights in what M6 called "la Trilogie du Samedi" (The Saturday Trilogy)
