French music channel Mezzo has now launched in 22 countries across Africa on pay-TV platform Les Bouquets Canal+.
Dedicated to classical music, jazz and dance, the channel is available in SD, HD and on-demand. Mezzo also acquires the broadcast rights to 150 new opera, concert and ballet performances each year.
