Online news

A list of websites that broadcast news or programmes in many different languages covering various countries.

Expatriates have an extra need when it comes to media. Quite often the main issues are, beside a new language, the need to keep in touch with home. This listing of online resources is prepared for a multitude of nationalities and with your help we will be able to cover them all. Keep adding to our selection for the benefit of all. Contact us.

Traditionally the best way to stay in touch with news from another country was satellite TV or Cable TV (which would require time to set up) or a powerful radio. Unfortunately there were - and still are - locations in the world were these options are not viable.
To our advantage new ways are now available to remain in touch with our home country. Internet, in fact, has brought more options to us globetrotters in the form of online tv and newspapers. Yes you still need  to be connected somehow, but it is getting increasingly easier to have an internet connection.
