Who Owns the World's Media?

This chapter examines media ownership and concentration in Egypt. Following an overview of the Egyptian media landscape, the remainder of the chapter focuses on print media (newspapers), audiovisual media (radio, broadcast television, multichannel TV platforms, video channels), telecommunications media (wireline and wireless telecom), and Internet media (Internet Service Providers, search engines). The evolution of politics underlies the configuration of the media ecosystem in Egypt. Although the contemporary media landscape in Egypt has become more dynamic within the last decade, government involvement is a cornerstone to the development, or lack thereof, of each sector. The government owns the TV broadcaster ERTU, the wireline incumbent Telecom Egypt, and the three major newspapers. In mobile communications, entrants are Vodafone, Etisalat, and Mobinil.

Keywords:   Egyptian media market, telecommunications, Internet, Government of Egypt, Mobinil, Vodafone, Etisalat, Hayat, ART, Al Ahram, Al Gomhouriya, Al Akhbar, ERTU
