W9 (pronounced [dublevé noef]) is a French television network available through digital terrestrial television TNT, satellite and ADSL. It is a subsidiary of the Groupe M6; the name W9 has been selected for the channel because "W9" is a mirror written equivalent of "M6", and as it was the nation's ninth broadcast network.

History

The name W9 was invented by Les Inconnus in the early 90s with a sketch that spoofed M6's music programming at the time, with the logo being a rotated version of M6's. The sketch portrays the interaction between Roxane (played by Pascal Légitimus) with an American accent who wants to ask Michel (played by Bernard Campan) about the name of the excerpt of the song that was being played.

Before getting a terrestrial license, W9 was M6 music, a satellite channel launched on 1 March 1998. The channel was replaced by M6 Music Hits on the day W9 launched. W9 is one of the first channels of TNT France (French DVB-T).
