Namibia profile - Media
Namibia's constitution provides for press freedom. The media operate in a "relatively open environment", says US-based Freedom House.
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) says journalists are subject to government "threats" and that self-censorship takes place in state media.
State-run NBC is the main broadcaster. There are five national daily newspapers, including a state-owned title.
There were nearly 400,000 internet users by 2016 (Internetlivestats.com). Critical journalists "find a refuge" on the internet, says RSF.
