English-language newspapers and TV available? Cost?

There are 3 main papers in town, all in English. However the quality of the journalism is lacking and stories tend to focus on accidents and deaths. Both internet and DSTV options exist. We use DSTV and have a good package with kids' stuff, movies, news, sports, etc. Cost is about US$65/month. - Mar 2012

Yes. Local TV has 4 stations, all are state-owned and operated. You can get Cable (which is sent through an antennae, weird huh?) or DirectTV. Cost is 50 - 75 per month. This is usually the signal from Puerto Rico, so many Spanish language channels. - Feb 2012

Yes, this is an English language country. - Feb 2010

Five stars on Amazon! Don't miss Talesmag's first book of essays, on cross-cultural food experiences from Mexico to Mongolia (plus recipes!)
