Media of Libya

Media of Libya Last updated on Thursday 22nd April 2010

Government control over the media has resulted in much of the population preferring to entertain itself by watching videos or foreign stations via satellite, such as CNN.

Libyan television programmes are mostly in Arabic with a 30-minute news broadcast each evening in English and French. It is also possible to watch the occasional sports programme.

Libya's daily newspaper is Al-Fajr al-Jadid, published in Tripoli. Foreign newspapers are available, but are often very out-of-date by the time they reach the shops.

There is a good reception for the BBC World Service.
