The Kingdom of the Union of Caputia has a strong tradition of private and public service broadcasting and a developing international reputation for creative programs and films. There are several different types of media in Caputia: television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and websites.

Caputia has a diverse range of providers, the most prominent being the publicly-owned public service broadcaster, the Caputian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Previously known as the Hammish Broadcasting Corporation, it first began with regular government-funded radio broadcasts of news, events, and important notices to the public, quickly dominated Hammish air waves.

Commercial TV and radio began later on with heavy investment from Alexandrian entertainment companies as both Alexandria and then-Hamland grew closer. The ABC and other Alexandrian networks began operating in Hamland. Native commercial radio and TV arrived later. Hundreds of privately-owned radio and TV stations now compete with the CBC for listeners and viewers. Other than the CBC, the top four national TV and radio networks (in order of size) are CapuTV, El Mundo, ITN and Meir Networks. TV networks are starting to face determined competition from nascent digital satellite and cable networks, partly funded by the national reconstruction effort after the civil war.

Native-produced soaps top TV ratings, with many Caputian viewers following the life stories of a community reeling from the civil war in the CBC's Life Goes On, and Meir Networks' Dazed Instances in Abeis - a soap about the lives of a group of teenagers growing up in the Haifan city of Abeis.

Caputia also has a thriving music and film industry. The Zalae Film Festival and the Judah Film Festival are among the most prestigious film festivals in all of Micras. Its most well known entertainment companies are Premium Micras Pictures (PMP), MayTel, and Zalae Records.

The Caputian media sector is relatively open, with participants from many countries active in almost all aspects – newspapers, television, magazines, radio, film, books, advertising, music, telephones and public relations. The Caputian media are free and able to report on all aspects of Caputian life. The variety of publications reflects the full spectrum of political opinion. In recent years, printed newspaper circulations have been declining while online readership has surged.

It should be remembered that, while, in many respects, the Caputian media landscape is a single entity, there are distinctive Caputian, Haifan, Wechua and Alexandrian dimensions, reflecting the composition of the country itself.

Print

Newspapers

Most Caputian newspapers can be divided into two: "broadsheets" and "tabloids". Broadsheets are seen as being higher-quality, with greater journalistic integrity and widely trusted. The tabloids are more populist and also widely cover entertainment news.
