Media Ownership and Concentration in Mexico

Who Owns the World's Media?

This chapter examines media ownership and concentration in Mexico. Following an overview of the Mexican media scene, the chapter describes print media (newspapers), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, multichannel TV platforms, and film), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), and Internet media (Internet Service Providers and online news market). Mexico has one of the most concentrated audiovisual and telecommunication markets in the world, and this is unlikely to change in the near future, despite governmental efforts and the creation of a new regulatory system. The telecom sector is dominated by Carlos Slim, possibly the world’s richest man. Broadcasting is controlled by Televisa. And the newspaper sector is substantially led by OEM. While new technologies such as multichannel platforms have introduced some competitiveness to the market, concentration indicators have either stabilized or increased since 2000.

Keywords:   Mexican media market, media industry, TV platforms, print media, audiovisual media, telecommunications, Internet, Slim, Azcarraga, OEM
