A strike at France's public broadcaster over budget cuts has caused disruptions to television broadcasts in Wallis and Futuna.

The strike has a small following but has impacted on both radio and television networks in France.

The union action is in protest at cuts next year, which will decrease the television budget by 2.3 percent to 3.16 billion US dollars.

The radio budget has been cut by half a percent and will drop to 790 million US dollars.
