There exist two state-run television stations, one in Malabo and one in Bata.

Freedom of Speech

Although the constitution of Equatorial Guinea provides for free speech and a free press, the government is said to severely restrict these freedoms in practise, censoring all criticism of the president and security forces. Access to foreign publications is limited.
