This chapter describes media ownership and concentration in South Africa. After a quick look at the South African media scene, the chapter analyzes 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). South Africa’s media landscape is highly concentrated. In the audiovisual media, the dominant players are the government public service broadcaster SABC and the private Naspers. In telecom, the governmental Telkom dominates, with Vodacom, NTN, and Cell C rivals in mobile communications.

Keywords:   South African media market, media industry, media groups, print media, audiovisual media, telecommunications, Internet, Naspers, Telkom
