English-language Media in Hungary

Information about local and international English-language print and broadcast media that is available in Hungary and Budapest...

There are some English-language newspapers and magazines, but no dedicated radio stations for foreigners living in Hungary. There are also a range of online media resources. Many international newspapers are sold at shops and news-stands, particularly in those belonging to the network of Relay, Immedio or Pavilonhaz.

Print Publications

Most major publications are available online as well as in print. For a more portable digital version, apps like theĀ Mail Plus App from the UK's Daily Mail Group allow the latest news to be read on a phone or tablet, often for much less than the cost of a subscription.
