Uruguayans have access to a wide range of political views via more than 100 private daily and weekly newspapers, more than 100 radio stations and some 20 television channels. Cable TV is widely available.
State-run radio and TV are operated by the official broadcasting service, SODRE. Some newspapers are owned by, or linked to, the main political parties.
Freedom of speech and media are guaranteed by the constitution, with qualifications for inciting violence or "insulting the nation".
Rights body Reporters Without Borders noted in 2008 that Uruguay was free from the "media polarisation" seen across much of the continent, scoring highly in press freedom rankings.
