Radio & TV

Namibia Information

The national broadcaster is called the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation, and they operate the main Namibian Television channel as well as several local language radio stations.

The good news for TV addicts is that the South African based satellite channels offered by DsTV are widely available. Sports fans need not worry as sport is a religion in Namibia and television coverage of any major sporting event (even if it is American) is pretty much guaranteed.

There are a several private radio stations, ranging from the religious to the obscure - most are only available in Windhoek and other large towns. Usually larger guest houses, pensions & hotels in Namibia offer TV's in their rooms - often these only offer a cut down version on the standard satellite channels, with only 5 or 6 choices available.

Radio reception is not available once you travel any distance from a town.

My father hated radio and could not wait for television to be invented so he could hate that too. Peter De Vries
