A mix of Indian channels and AFN for those living on the embassy compound. - Mar 30, 2013
We have AFN and a few other assorted stations from Dubai. It's free and it's not too bad. Havn't seen any papers around but that's what the internet is for. - Dec 27, 2010
AFN on the compound; Indian satellite channels everywhere, including HBO, National Geographic, etc. There is an English-language Afghan weekly newspaper. - Aug 2, 2010
Embassy TVs are connected to Armed Forces TV (AFN). Some shows are a little behind, but they do air current episodes of "contest" shows (SYTYCD, Top Chef, American Idol, etc.) I read US newspapers online. - Jul 10, 2010
All apartments/hooches have AFN television. You can obtain Stars & Stripes at the embassy. If you want any other publications, have them mailed to you. - Sep 7, 2009
