Technological breakthroughs are an enabler in the convergence between telecommunications operators and media. Close economic examination put at stake the interpretation based on vertical integration and complementary strategies of telecom operators and content producers. Approach to convergence must be renewed because situation is not the same as 20 years ago. The multiplication of TV channels, the development of Internet and the growing bandwidths have resulted in the explosion of on line content. This contributed to the expansion and predominance of digital platforms that invested significantly in content production and network infrastructure. These original converging strategies call for regulatory issues because the changes raise new challenges associated with the new market structure: segmentation of regulation perspective, competitive and non-price strategies, net neutrality.
