Tanzanian Media

For Tanzanian television, you’ll find that BBC World and CNN are both popular and often fill air-time on the national channels during the day (ITV, for example, switches to BBC at 8am every morning). Channel O is Africa’s MTV equivalent and a favourite with waitresses who often have it blaring out in the restaurant while you’re trying to eat. Satellite TV has also taken off in Tanzania and the choice of stations is unsurprisingly overwhelming.

Radio Tanzania is the most popular station, with some broadcasts in English.
