English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

Newspapers, not so much. TV, there is DSTV from South Africa. Installation is pretty expensive. Some Embassy houses have AFN dishes, and if you can find a decoder you can watch US TV. - Nov 24, 2012
Yes. - May 21, 2012
We had AFN but there was satellite television available. It was very expensive (roughly $700 start up + 200 a month) - Feb 13, 2012
No. - Nov 13, 2011
Yes - Aug 4, 2011
Not that we found. Our English news was thru the internet. Some people had English newspapers shipped to them. - Jan 19, 2011
AFN is provided. DSTV is very nice and offers different packages, (I think at around $100/mo, but I could be off). There is local television as well: in French. - Oct 16, 2010
BBC in English at certain times during the day on one radio station; satellite TV from S. Africa (there's an English-language option). - Jan 21, 2009
