Privately-run TV6 dominates the ratings in Trinidad and Tobago. The state-owned Caribbean New Media Group (CNMG) operates a TV network and radio stations.

The government generally respects press freedom, which is enshrined in the constitution. There are three daily newspapers. The press scene is "vigorously pluralistic", says Freedom House.

BBC World Service radio is available on 98.7 FM.

There were more than 650,000 internet users by June 2012 (via Internetworldstats.com). Facebook is the most popular social media platform.
