Media

  • Newspapers & Magazines The most respected Norwegian-language daily is Aftenposten (www.aftenposten.no), while VG (www.vg.no) and Dagbladet (www.dagbladet.no) are other national mass-circulation dailies. Morgenbladet (www.morgenbladet.no) is a Norwegian-language weekly, while the Norway Post (www.norwaypost.no) is a good source of news in English, although the print version is not widely available. Major international newspapers and magazines are available a day after publication in cities (sometimes the same day in Oslo and other cities with international flight connections).

Hotels often have cable TV. Numerous private radio statiions, mostly with a musical focus, supplement the government stations. The NRK Alltid Nyheter station broadcasts the BBC World Service every second hour or so.
  • DVD Norway uses the PAL (Region 2) DVD system.
