English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

Cable isn't very interesting, but it's there. Some movies. Indian news, and I guess CNN and BBC. The usual. - Aug 14, 2013
Yes, and affordable. More likely to have sitcoms and reality shows, rather than intense American drama. Honestly, there is so much to do that just sitting in front of the TV is rare. - May 18, 2013
Yes. Plenty. - Oct 21, 2012
English newspapers are available. TV is very bad here. I suggest that you bring lots of movies. Depending on provider, during every rain they TV will go out. - Sep 16, 2012
Yes, plenty. - Aug 12, 2011
a plethora - I think cable cost $6 a month. - Aug 7, 2011
Yes, not too expensive. - Aug 4, 2011
Cable and satellite TV are available and affordable with channels of all languages. - Jan 8, 2011
Plenty of newspapers (40 cents a day or less) and cable TV $30/month. IHT comes 2 days late - so it's better to read the NYT online. - Sep 18, 2010
Many. Very cheap (both in price and quality). - Aug 30, 2010
Lots of decent, inexpensive English-language press. - Aug 12, 2010
Many newspapers are available, as are magazines. Local ones are very cheap. Overseas papers are here, too, but they come with a hefty price. Cable TV is pretty good; we have lots of channels in English, including HBO, and it's very cheap---around $10.00 a month. - Aug 1, 2010

There are plenty of English newspapers and you can get almost any magazine you want in English. The newspapers are cheap, the magazines are more expensive if imported, cheap if they're local. We have about 30 English TV channels with enough variety to keep us entertained. - Feb 4, 2008
