This chapter looks at media ownership and concentration in Sweden. After an overview of the Swedish media landscape, the remainder of the chapter is about print media (newspapers, book publishing, magazine publishing), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, multichannel TV platforms, video channels, film), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), and Internet media (Internet Service Providers). The Swedish market shows declining concentrations in TV broadcasting, book publishing, wireline telecom, film production and distribution, and ISPs. It shows rising concentrations for daily newspapers and magazines, and it demonstrates relatively sustained concentration indices for wireless telecom, satellite and cable TV, and radio broadcasting. The major telecom firms are Telia Sonera, Telenor, and Kinnevik. In print media, the top firms are Bonnier, and in audiovisual media, the public SVT, Bonnier, and Kinnevik. Com Hem dominates cable television.

Keywords:   Swedish media market, media industry, ISP, cable TV, audiovisual media, telecommunications, Internet, Telia Sonera, Kinnevik, SVT, Bonnier, Com Hem
