Watch Live TV from Tanzania

State TV launched in 2001, several years after the first private station. A state-owned national radio station and more than 40 privately owned radio stations are in operation (2007). A state-owned TV station and multiple privately owned TV stations are in operation (2007). The transmissions of several international broadcasters are available (2007). There are government restrictions on broadcasting in tribal languages.

The semiautonomous Zanzibari government controls the content of all public and private radio and television broadcasts in its islands. Even in the case of state television broadcast from the mainland, there was a delay in the feed, allowing Zanzibari censors to intervene. However, Zanzibari radio stations operate relatively independently, often reading the content of national dailies, including articles critical of the Zanzibari government.
