English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

English-language newspapers are available, but they seem very sensationalist. DSTV is widely available, but I am not sure of the cost. DSTV is out of South Africa and offers a very wide variety of stations including Discovery, History, childrens, movie channels, sports, et al. - Apr 25, 2013
Yes - about $1/day. - Jul 9, 2010
We don't have tv service; it's close to US$100 month. Newspapers are more expensive than in the U.S., and print crap: what Zambian can afford 75 cents a day for a paper?! - Mar 19, 2009
Yes, newspapers are cheap and DSTV is a bit more than US$100 a month. - Mar 7, 2009
All available. DSTV has crappy programs at US$70 per month. - Oct 5, 2008
Yep - DSTV is about US$100/month and the local paper is about US$1/day - but no home delivery. - Aug 23, 2008
Local TV and papers are in English. Papers run about 75 cents. Subscription to South African DSTV service runs about US$70/month and you can get both BBC and CNN in addition to a range of entertainment and sports channels. - May 18, 2008
