English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

You can order AFN cable for a fee. - Sep 19, 2011
No English newspapers. Via cable/satellite you can get plenty of English-language television, including CNN, BBC, Eurosport, Discovery, etc. - Oct 14, 2009
International Herald Tribune is around, but pricey. Ditto for the international versions of major news magazines. Embassy personnel utilized either AFN or a rather pricey local cable platform called Super System which provided CNN, BBC, Discovery, National Geographic, Eurosport and others which, I believe has a US$200 set up fee and a monthly charge of something like US$35. - Jul 26, 2008
The Herald Tribune and (NY)Times Digest are available for delivery. You can also find Time, Newsweek, and The Economist. Cable TV includes the usual CNN, BBC, etc. There is Satelite also but this depends on the landlord. - Jan 9, 2008
