Abstract A process for switching television programmes is characterized in that it detects (8, 9) and then stores (10) the appended data of intra type of programmes other than the selected programme, selects (10) and decodes (12), upon a command (14) for the switching over to a new programme, the stored appended data relating to this new programme, and temporarily transmits (13), while awaiting the decoding and transmission of the current data of the new programme, the decoded appended data. Applications relate for example to the perusing of programmes.
