Traditionally the best way to stay in touch with news from another country was satellite TV or Cable TV (which would require time to set up) or a powerful radio. Unfortunately there were - and still are - locations in the world were these options are not viable.
To our advantage new ways are now available to remain in touch with our home country. Internet, in fact, has brought more options to us globetrotters in the form of online tv and newspapers. Yes you still need to be connected somehow, but it is getting increasingly easier to have an internet connection.
