Who Owns the World's Media?

This chapter considers media ownership and the media landscape in Israel. Following a summary of media in that country, the rest of the chapter focuses on 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, search engines, online news market). Traditional print concentration in Israel is declining, while digital media are evolving into a vertically integrated, highly concentrated distribution system. Magazines, book publishing, pay TV, and online news portals demonstrate healthy competition, while concentration for newspapers and broadcast television has been declining for a while. The major telecom players are the incumbent Bezeq, as well as Partner Communications, and Cellcom. Cable TV is dominated by HOT, and broadcast TV by Channel 2, Channel 10, and the public IBA. The largest newspapers are Yediot Aharonot and Israel Hayom. Overall, the number of media voices in Israel, calculated on a per-capita basis, is near the top of the countries investigated.
