INTRODUCTION:
Television- the scientific, technical, and cultural field concerned with the transmission of visual information—moving images—over distances by electronic means; the term “television” also refers to the method used in such transmission. Once considered a complete luxury for a family to own, the television has become a stable fixture in households over the past few decades. In recent years, it has become unusual for a family not to own a television set and now it is just as uncommon for a family to own just one.
Television or “TV” has become a prominent source for news and entertainment for billions of people around the world. It is also one of the principal means of communication, used in science, management, technology, and other applied fields: for example, it is used in dispatching and monitoring systems for industry and transportation, in space and nuclear research, and in the military.

A lot of this discourse focuses on the ways television affects changes in societies’ behavior and culture. This is visible via various scholarly communities.
