Since 2010 Mongolian television has been in transition from analogue to digital.
This article introduces the process of digital transition of television, and then
discusses challenges television stations face in terms of the audio-visual market and
policies. The Mongolian media market has structural constraints typical to those
in the small media states. In addition, new challenges like the financial dependency
on the mining sector tax, an unsustainable number of politically affiliated
commercial television stations, and the remnants of socialist institutional routines
in media organizations also shape the television sector in Mongolia. The study
also explores the state of public interest media services and opportunities due to the
increasing convergenceo f televisionw ith the Internet. The argumentsa re built based
on an analyses of existing legal and market studies, and in-depth interview data
with professionals representing media, government and civil society institutions in
