Lagos - Post Report Question and Answers

English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

Yes. Int'l Herald Tribune is available as a subscription (to your door), but is very costly. CNN and other new channels are broadcast over the Armed Forces Network free of charge to embassy housing. The Economist and other current magazines are available on the streets, but are also expensive. - Dec 2011

Consulate can provide AFN, if current MSG gunny agrees. One english language daily paper-- not much good. - Sep 2008

TV for us is all AFN, which is ok. You can buy a satelite for mostly British shows, sports. No English papers, or magazines. Occasionally, you can find magazines at the grocery stores, but they are about US$20 each. - May 2008
