The Media landscape in Mexico has evolved rapidly over the last two decades. The two leading media houses in the country are Televisa and TV Azteca, and they are also the TV giants. Televisa engages in investigative journalism and interprets the country’s political trends. The magazine market remains the most dynamic market in Mexico’s media world. Some like the GQ and Esquire come with high local content. It, thus, continues to be one of the greatest avenues to inform the people in Mexico on cultural aspects, fashion and politics.
Media houses like the Televisa have gone online, and the legacy has been shared with Mexico’s major magazines. El Universal, the most successful partner and newspaper of the Televisa is now read online. Carlos Bonavides, the paper’s editor, affirms that more people are reading the paper on their mobile phones and tablets than even on the computers. The media industry in Mexico can be compared to a revolution. It is the country with the highest Smartphone usage and penetration in Latin America
