The objective has been to describe the process of concentration of media and information companies, which began with the search for new profits, starting with the crisis of the industrial development model since the 1970s.

The concentration of cultural industries is a phenomenon that can not be limited to a specific period, since the intrinsic characteristics of its products favor it. What yes, is that with the policies of low tariffs between countries, the facilities for capital mobility and privatizations, made the concentration to be deployed on a global scale, creating mega corporations of global or regional scope, beyond the national.

Favored by capital willing to invest in other sectors, technological changes took place, through new distribution networks and an increasingly digital form of production. These phenomena favored the convergence between sectors that previously offered different services and addressed different audiences: the audiovisual media, the computer and telecommunications.

In this work, we started with a descriptive analysis of those authors who studied the political economy of communication. Then there was a historical analysis, where the great ones of the audiovisual sector were analyzed and in the 21st century they converged, with those of the computer science and the telecommunications, to create a very segmented world market with a powerful development of the distribution networks.
