We have witnessed many inventions for the last couple of years but television is an amazing invention by the scientist so far. At present, we can’t imagine our life without television. It is a technological device which gives entertainment and important information through its graphic language. There are loads of advantages and disadvantages of television. I am going to explain the pros and cons of watching television in detail.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Television

Let’s Have Look at the Advantages and Disadvantages of Television

Advantages of Television:

A mean of amusement:

Sometimes, we are sick of the hustle bustle of the daily work. We need something entertaining thing, which entertains us. Television is a wonderful device to refresh our mind. We have a lot of channels with different categories, which allow you to watch, whatever you want. At evening time, generally, we all flock to our TV room to enjoy cinema, serials, and cricket. There are channels for a teenager, kids, and aged people.

A medium of information:

Television is considered as a source of information. By television, we can be familiar with the rest of the world. We can come to know what is happening around the world. There are varied news channels like Hindi, English, and Gujarati. These news channels keep us updated whenever something happens around us. This is the biggest advantage of watching television.

Useful in leisure time:

Those who have no work at home and feeling bored, for them television is the best option to spend leisure time. We can spend our whole day easily watching television.

Source of Communication:

In olden days, it was very difficult for our political leaders to communicate with the people as they had no sources to reach the people of different cast and culture. Sometimes, they failed to convey the core agendas of the party. After the invention of the television, it has become very easy for the political leaders to canvass and target the people of different states and cultures. Many companies use the platform of television to sell their products by communicating the people directly.

Useful in learning different things:

There are many channels on television through which we can learn many things. There are many history channels available on the television. We can get knowledge of history and ancient customs and cultures. There are many channels in which we find information about diseases and how to come out from such diseases. We have yoga channels that teach us the different positions of yoga to be fit in life. We can do yoga at home by imitating them.

Our best partner:

Television is our best partner. Whenever we feel lonely, it removes our loneliness and accompanies us. Television makes us feel that we are not alone.

Provide laughter:

It is said that laughter is the best medicine and to some extent, it is not lying. On the television, there are many channels, which are broadcasting the laughter shows. We have the best example” The Kapil Sharma Show” it has the highest TRP ranking. This show has been providing laughter to the audience for the last couple of years. People are flocking to the living rooms for watching this show as people find a lot of humor in this show. We feel relaxed after enjoying this show.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Television

The disadvantage of Watching TV:

On the other hand, television has many disadvantages too. We must not overlook the bad aspects of television and its impacts on our life. Let’s go through the disadvantages of watching television to my point of view.

Too much vulgarity & violence:

I am of the opinion that most teenagers are fond of watching such shows, which has too much vulgarity. There are many adult movies on television, where we can find too much sex and nudity, violence, and abusive language. It has bad impacts on their mind. They imitate bad things and do in real life, which is going to harm our society eventually. According to me, the rise in rape incidents is only because of such vulgar and nude shows on television. The government of India should ban such shows as early as possible otherwise our culture will disappear one day. The crimes in India are increasing day by day only because of violent movies and shows.

Distract us:

An excess of anything is harmful. Watching too much television can distract us from our real goal in life. It makes us idle also forever. We become addicted to TV and forget the importance of people around us. We always give first priority to TV than our family and friends.

Health Problems:

Too much television can cause health problems in the future. Sitting at the same place the whole day can cause obesity. A number of people are suffering from obesity because of watching TV continuously. Those who have a habit of watching TV late night can suffer insomnia sooner or later.

These are the advantages and disadvantages of television, we all must be aware and put into practice in our life. You can read more details like this on weSRCH.com.
