English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

I had some cable television which came with my apartment. I didn't upgrade from BBC, CNBC, and CNN. I just lived with it. You can upgrade, though, and deal with the nonsense of speaking Turkish when your cable goes out. It's best to stick with AFN if you can get it at your residence. - Oct 24, 2010
I have Digiturk satellite TV which costs me about $35 a month with many English-speaking channels, movies and sporting events. There are two English language newspapers you can read for free online. - Jan 4, 2010
Turkish Daily News and Herald Trib, as well as most Western news mags here. Expensive - Jan 3, 2010
