Media

  • Newspapers Budapest has two English-language newspapers: the Budapest Times (online only) with good reviews and opinion pieces, and the biweekly Budapest Business Journal.
  • Radio Magyar Radio has three main stations: MR1-Kossuth (107.8FM; jazz, talkback and news); MR2-Petőfi (94.8FM; popular music); and MR3-Bartók (105.3FM; classical music). Sláger FM (103.9FM) is a good mix of local and international pop music, and Rádió C (88.8FM) addresses issues concerning the Roma people.
  • TV & DVD Like Australia and most of Europe, Hungary uses PAL, which is incompatible with the North American and Japanese NTCS system.
