Phnom Penh

English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

The Cambodia Daily is a good English summary of Khmer and international news. There are a few English channels, though it's mostly reality shows, CSI and Nat Geo. You can use a VPN to watch Netflix or Hulu. - Aug 13, 2013
Two major papers - the Phnom Penh Post and the Cambodia Daily. Both do a good job of covering local events and carry a selection of wire stories. Cable TV runs around $100/year and has a dozen or so English channels, plus channels in other languages as well. - Jan 16, 2012
We had cable for $100 per year, Probably about 10-15 of the channels were in English. HBO, Max, Stars, AXN and others. The embassy provided and AFN box as well. - Aug 9, 2011
Cable is available for $60 / months. Cambodia Daily Newspaper is decent. - Aug 6, 2011
If you have cable, the TV comes feeds come from Hong Kong and Manila, so mostly US programs in English. The Phnom Penh post and the Cambodia Daily are two newspapers that are in English. - Oct 9, 2010
Yes. Cheap cable - less than the U.S. - Feb 27, 2008
