Newspapers and magazines

You can browse any news portal, while Youtube and social media websites are also freely accessible in Hungary, including international profiles.

For non-Hungarians there are also some local newspapers available in foreign languages, such as the Budapest  Times in English, Budapester Zeitung in German or Le Journal Francophone de Budapest in French. And in case you can’t go without them, the best-known international newspapers and magazines are also available at major newsstands and foreign-language bookshops.

To keep up-to-date with what there is to do and see in Hungary, pick up a copy of Funzine, an English-language programmes and events magazine, or read it online. It is free and available at many hotels, restaurants, clubs, cafés and universities.

The Budapest Sun stopped beinpublishing a few years ago, while BBJ and Pester Lloyd are only available online now.

Papers available online

TV channels

With a cable or a satellite tuner you can receive most European channels. But a good way to learn the Hungarian language is through watching the national channels:

  • m1 and m2: the two major national television channels
  • m3: a retro channel for old Hungarian shows and films
  • Duna TV: a national channel for Hungarians inside and outside the country, sometimes with famous European art films as part of its timetable
  • RTL Klub, TV2, Viasat3: commercial stations mainly offering various shows and light entertainment
  • TV Paprika: everything about cooking and gastronomy
