This chapter is about media ownership and concentration in the Netherlands. Once it has summarized the Dutch media landscape, the remainder of the chapter looks toward print media (newspapers, 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). Print media is becoming less concentrated, while concentration is increasing in the audiovisual sector whose main firms are the public NPB, RTL (Bertelsmann). Internet media have seen concentration progress along a U-shaped curve between 2001 and 2010. The main telecom firms is the incumbent KPN. In cable television, it is Ziggo and Liberty Global.
