Satellite TV is most important mode of entertainment for all classes and age of people in Dhaka. Day by day its demand is increasing rapidly in Dhaka city. These satellite programs have lots of impact in our day to day life but having instead of good effect bad comes first like they are causing very worse influence over the people of Dhaka city and are also affecting the cultural life. Our culture based on some social value, norms, language, tradition which are getting affected to some worse due to these very satellite channels. To know how people of Dhaka are affected by satellite programs, which age of people are mainly affected by it, how satellite is changing our cultural norms, how it is having a bad impact in our society, to what extent it is liable to destroy our culture and affecting our lives not for good but for worse. Does it have only bad effect or if it is some good for the peoples life, we did a survey to know the answers of all these questions, this survey includes all sort of personnel from the professional working people in Dhaka city, to the self employed, house wives and even the people who so contribution to the society is not much. In our survey we had chosen 21 people who are living in Dhaka city and all are regularly viewer of various satellite channels and the programs. The age group of these people is from 21 to 40 and they professionally involve in all sort of government job, retired officer, businessman, housewife, student, working woman.

Due to all these external cultures are being imposed on ours own and our own culture is getting diminished day by day. Apart from the bad effects it also has some good affect in our life.
