Mongolia's public-service broadcaster competes with private and satellite/cable services. In all, there are more than 300 print and broadcasting outlets.
In general the media are free and sometimes outspoken in their criticism of the authorities.
Many livestock herders rely on the national public radio for information, although access to satellite TV is on the rise.
There are many newspapers, including dailies, but despite a high level of literacy, circulations and editions are often small. State-owned papers have been privatised; some titles are published by political parties.
The BBC World Service is available on FM (103.1 MHz) in Ulan Bator.
There were 636,000 internet users by June 2012 (InternetWorldStats). There are no official restrictions on web access.
