London - Post Report Question and Answers

English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

Everything is in English. You can use BT, Sky or Virgin for cable. We use Sky because they have more American channels. With an internet and satelite package, we pay about US$150 a month. - Jan 2012

Yes. TV satellite is available, but more expensive than in the States. Poor programming choices, but this may be universal! Great BBC programming. - Aug 2011

Of course, and at the same prices as in the US. There's a TV tax of some sort, though. I think it was about 100 pounds a year, but I didn't get a TV while I was there, so I don't know. - Nov 2009

Oh yes. There is a wide variety of TV types to chose from, like Sky and Virgin media. No AFN available in the city though. - Mar 2009

Absolutely. - Sep 2008

People love their newspapers - here and you can find several for all political inclinations. - Feb 2008
