English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

TV is available. The best English package costs about US$100 a month. - Sep 13, 2013
Truth in journalism is not Rwanda's strong suit, but there are a couple of English language newspapers and many Kinyarwanda tabloids available. TV is extremely limited in Rwanda, so bring your AFN decoder or South African DSTV. - May 6, 2012
Most Embassy employees have AFN.We have to pay for the decoder box, but the Embassy provides the satellite. - Apr 2, 2012
Yes. - Jul 28, 2011
None. Find an AFN dish. - Oct 20, 2010
Yes, both are available in English. I do not know the cost, we use AFN. - Jan 23, 2010
Local English papers are limited to the scope of content and perspective probably due to governmental censorship, thus not recommended. If you want English TV you will have to have to purchase dish satellite service. Aside from the equipment and installation, monthly bills can range over US$100. - Aug 9, 2008
