Wed, 02 Dec 2009

Building on its strong tradition of being innovative and "people centric", Renault is launching its own TV Channel – Renault TV – on Sky Guide 883 on 3rd December 2009.

Ever since its creation in 1898 Renault has always offered products and services that are ahead of their time. Complimenting the new brand vision – “Drive the change” – Renault intends to take on the challenges of the future by being attentive to people and their needs.

The objective of Renault TV is to nurture the public’s passion and interest for the Renault brand. The Renault TV channel is a real window into the brand’s heritage, its products and events. The channel will entertain, inform and inspire dreams communicating Renault’s clear people focused values.

“Renault isn’t like other brands: we innovate in the interest of everyone” explains Stephen Norman, Renault’s Global Marketing Director.  “A real ‘people centric’ brand and, perhaps, the only one of our time.  Renault TV offers more than the online content and allows a wider audience to have a different and cool relationship with the brand, that goes beyond the ephemeral few seconds of the internet”
