The third chain intends to prove reliable as a new chain of the areas, color, without publicity nor announcer.
For its beginnings, it diffuses only three hours of programs per day, collected by 26% of the population mainly concentrated in North and the Paris region. At the end of the decade, the total cover of the territory will be indeed effective.

March 22nd 1976, regional television becomes daily. In this awakening of regional curiosity, the chain launches the Sets of 20 hours , making it possible the areas to be successively with the national antenna at the time of a duplex between a station and the Parisian studio whose Maître Capello officiates. With this progressive appearance of televisual contents more specifically regional, the State very slowly undertakes the administrative and economic regionalization of the French territory where the regional stations return gradually within this new framework.

CNCL names Rene Han with the direction of the chain in December, which reorientates its national plans towards a more cultural mission: Thalassa passes from the second part of evening to the Friday evening to 20:45, the theater settles at one hour for great listening every Wednesday evenings with 20:45, and Questions for a champion is launched in November 1988. The launching of the Class in 1987 following the 19/20 also makes it possible the chain to preserve its public " France profonde" until the premium-time. In August 1989, in preoccupations with a reinforcement of the audio-visual public vis-a-vis private competition, the SCUMS joins together Antenne 2 and FR3 under a common presidency, in the person of Philippe Guilhaume.
