Belize has no daily newspapers; some weeklies are subsidised by political parties.

Radio listeners rely on a range of commercial outlets, most of them networked nationwide. Privately-owned TV stations are on the air and cable TV is available in the towns.

The constitution guarantees media freedom, but provides exceptions in the interest of national security, public order and morality.

There were 74,700 internet users by June 2012 (Internetworldstats). There are no official curbs, but internet use is low because of a lack of infrastructure and high costs, says US-based Freedom House. Facebook is the main social media platform.
