    Highly unlikley they come back as their national TV is owned by TF1, the French private TV channel, a rival of France 2.

    So, unless the Prince Albert II pays himself the fee, Monaco will never come back to the Contest.

    That's a shame.. TMC has money for itself (they're making good ratings in France, always in the TOP 10), it's a part of the TF1 group who is the biggest channel in France and one of the biggest in Europe.
    TF1 could use it to tease France Televisions and i think that Monaco could host the show, they have a stadium with enough space, 18K people, they just missing a roof but hey.. that's not the hardest thing to build. Azerbaijan built an entire building in less than a year.

    Bad news, but expected... nevertheless hope to see them some time in future again.

    Re: MONACO 2016 - not taking part

    I can't see them coming back anytime soon and it's understandable. It costs too much money and they need sponsors, since without them, they can't afford to participate. Also the chances of qualifying are almost 0% and the people in Monaco who want to watch ESC can easily watch it on France 2 or RAI.
    The only way I can see them returning is if a sponsor appears from somewhere, but I can't see it working for more than a year. Even if a singer covers the costs, it would probably end the same way as Senit's participation for San marino. So unless the sanmarinese broadcaster gets tired of Siegel and he somehow convinces TMC, I really don't see them returning in the next 20 years.
