English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

A complete telecom bundle is about US$125, just read the fine print. - Jul 2013

Yes. A few over the air stations, cable, satellite, etc. Cable includes U.S. stations from Detroit or Buffalo. Costs are a bit more than in the U.S. and you can bundle with phone and internet like in the United States. The main providers are Bell and Rogers. - Jan 2013

All are available. Most US TV comes from Detroit stations for some reason. - Dec 2010

There are three major national English-language dailies and a local one, too. Cable TV packages are popular, and they usually include all the U.S. networks as well as the upstate NY PBS station, so you don't even miss the Jim Lehrer News Hour. - Aug 2010

Plenty...but likely more expensive than anything in the US. But I have a hard time believing there are things you can get in the US that you absolutely cannot get in Canada. - Nov 2009
