English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

One can get satellite TV, though I have no experience here. I saw little in the way of English-language printed press. - Dec 18, 2011
We had a satellite TV and could get some English programs. Not sure of the cost as this was all paid for, for us. Didn't see any English language newspapers. - Sep 23, 2008
Satellite TV. It's very cheap. - May 9, 2008
Not that I know of. Post provides AFRTS for on compound residents and others buy an English/Arabic service from Movie Star satellite company. I am not sure about the cost but I think it's about US$500/year. - Feb 25, 2008
