France Ôball is a French public television network featuring programming from the French overseas departments and collectivities in Metropolitan France. It is part of the France Télévisionsball group. Its overseas counterpart brother is Outre-Mer 1èreball.

Formerly known as RFO Satball, the channel was originally broadcasting 9 hours per day only. It was re-branded France Ôball in 2004 in order to better show it was part of the France Télévisionsball group. The "O" stands for Outre-mer (overseas), and the accent shows that the channel was opened to all accents and dialects of the world, but also ensures that the name of the channel is not read as France 0ball ("France zéroball").

The channel became available in overseas territories in November 2010, replacing the RFO-operated Tempoball.
