Chad Television

Television Stations in Chad

The only national television station, Teletchad, is state-owned and its coverage is supportive of the government. Among television viewers with the ability to receive international channels, Al Jazeera (Arabic Version), France 24 and TV5 (French Channels) are popular.

Private newspapers critical of the government circulate freely in the capital, N'Djamena, but have little impact among the largely rural and illiterate population.
