This chapter describes media ownership and concentration in Argentina. Following an overview of the Argentine media landscape, the remainder of the chapter looks at print media (newspapers, book publishing, magazine publishing), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, multichannel TV platforms, film), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), and Internet media (Internet Service Providers, search engines, online news market). The high levels of concentration in Argentine media are mainly the result of deregulation in the 1990s, when restrictions on media cross-ownership were removed. As a result, small media producers have largely disappeared, and independent media producers in the provinces have been acquired by the media majors based on Buenos Aires. One area where concentration has not increased, though, has been in content production for the audiovisual market, particularly in cable television programming. The major media company, Grupo Clarin, has been targeted by the Kirchner government due to its political opposition. The telecom market is mostly controlled by foreign firms, and highly concentrated.
