Mezzo’s channels

Since 1996, MEZZO has become the international reference for classical music, jazz and dance on television. Now broadcast in more than 60 countries with a community of 28 million subscribers, MEZZO has become indispensable for the most discerning of music lovers while providing a source of discovery accessible to the less well listened. Since April 2010, the Mezzo brand is available in two perfectly complementary networks that offer two completely different programs each month: Mezzo, the channel for artists and reportories. Mezzo Live HD, the most beautiful concert hall in High Definition. MEZZO is constantly expanding its content: a compact guide, new formats, and new repertories while Mezzo Live HD continues its tour of the world's biggest stages.
