Taiwan - Convergence & Digital Media


Taiwan has one of the highest TV penetrations in the world. In recent times, change has been the order of the day in Taiwan’s television industry - the establishment of a public television system, the legalisation of private cable TV operations, the increased popularity of satellite broadcasting, the promotion of digital television, and the employment of a whole range of new digital technologies. Cable television, which has been highly fragmented in Taiwan, has started to build itself into a healthier sector. Convergence is also starting to have an impact on the industry. This report provides an overview of Taiwan’s television broadcasting sector, as well as some of the major players involved.
