English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

If you're with the embassy, you can get AFN. Otherwise, satellite? For newspapers, there's the internet. - Jan 29, 2013
AFN is the satellite that has some English channels. Newspaper-no English or magazines in English. Forgot the cost of the AFN TV. - Dec 22, 2011
Yes. The English-language newspapers are pretty bad. Many embassy personnel have either AFN or the local cable. Local cable is pretty cheap (maybe $20 a month?). There are a number of English channels (CNN, BBC, National Geographic, Travel). - Sep 9, 2010
There are no English-language newspapers that I know of. Cable is $80 or so a month. AFN is here, but it is on Europe time, so we get everything 3 hours later. - Aug 21, 2010
Not sure about this one, we had AFN. - Oct 1, 2009
Yes. Not sure we use the AFN box. - Nov 5, 2008
There are free newspapers available weekly in my apartment lobby. - Sep 29, 2008
Yes, a couple of cable options or AFN. Relatively cheap. - Sep 9, 2008
