English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?
You can probably buy American papers somewhere, but they're very pricey. There are two English-language papers. One is called the Taipei Times and another called the China Post. English TV is available with cable. We got the Travel/Living Channel (a compilation of Food/Travel/House/Reality shows), and a bunch of movie channels such as HBO. For a while, we also got Star World, which used to have shows like the Ellen Degeneres show. Cable was cheap, about 510NT per month. I've heard there's a new thing called the MOD, which is even cheaper. - Aug 2011
