In this paper, we analyze the characteristic function of all the coalitions of the Tri-networks Convergence chain and research on the benefit distribution of Tri-networks Convergence chain based on Shapley value. We find that the broadcasting and the telecommunication operator can achieve cooperative and turn a win-lose situation into a win-win situation of reduced costs and increased revenues for the Tri-networks Convergence chain.
