Mezzo 'Classic-Jazz TV' is a French television channel mainly devoted to classical music and jazz. It shows documentaries, complete operas and ballets and has also focused on world music. It was formed in 1992 and was called France Supervision until 1998.

Its slogan is 'Écouter, Voir, Oser' ('Listen, Look, Dare').

In January 2008 it introduced a new night-time feature, 'Divertimezzo', consisting of video clips, but with the channel's usual wide range of music. Many of the clips are segments taken from complete concerts. In 2011 this was renamed 'Intermezzo'.
