When it comes to speaking about the advantages and disadvantages of television I don't think that the country you are living in makes any difference because the central idea is that television is the same everywhere: it doesn't matter the quality but the quantity of the programs.
Firstly, even though the number of channels is very high and thus you have the freedom to choose from, the programs that are on are not of a high quality, they are not always objective and most of the times they are trying to manipulate the audience.
Secondly, the majority of the channels are interested in making money and that's why the person ho pays more has much more to say for the audience. Fair equality for everybody but much more for the rich, isn't it so?
nce, drugs, weapons, murderers, have come to fill up our spare time because these are the topics that are most dealt with in the majority of the shows. Consequently children and teenagers receive a negative influence. On the other hand I must admit the beneficial role of television when it comes to persons that live alone and who don't have anyone to talk to.
Sadly, even if you find something interesting to watch you get bored of all the advertisements that keep interrupting the program every 20 minutes, precisely when something exciting is about to happen.
To sum up, television has its positive and negative aspects, but for me there are better ways to spend your spare time, that make you feel more relaxed and also much more connected to the persons around you, that don't isolate you in a room, with a "talking box" in front of you, which makes you waste precious time, as we all know that time is money.
