Abstract

This study examines ownership concentration in Taiwan's cable television industry by using concentration ratios (CR4 and CR8) and finds that Taiwan's cable systems and channels are highly concentrated in the hands of a few media conglomerates, meaning that the cable industry has become more oligopolistic. Communications researchers in Taiwan should pay more attention to media ownership concentration across various communications industries or conduct further studies on cross-industry concentration in the communications sector.
