Direct 8 is a national French TV channel, owned by Vincent Bolloré. It is available through digital terrestrial television network "TNT" and the Astra 1H satellite position.

As the name suggests ('direct' is French for 'live'), was intended to broadcast live shows only (except during night times and holiday seasons). This is no longer the case.
