Television is of course one of the biggest human inventions. Along with the light bulb and the car, it is fair to say that TV has transformed society. It has also provided a great source of media and information for all generations, allowing us all to watch entertaining shows and take in information, with news channels that cover breaking news from all over the world. Much like the Internet, the television is a fantastic and quick source of information.

One of the main advantages is that we can now take in information quickly, and learn about things we would not otherwise have learned about. Through the television, we can learn about distant lands and their current issues, as well as take in information in regards to science and culture. It’s allowed us all to become much more aware about global issues, and grow as people. Thanks to imported shows and satellite crews being able to broadcast live from wherever they are, this has allowed the English to learn about unfamiliar lands, and other nationalities to learn about our customs.

But of course, television also has its downsides. One of which is its hypnotising characteristics that draw children and adults alike to its screen to indulge in hours worth of entertainment. Whilst TV programmes are there to be enjoyed, the television can drain productive time and efforts and essentially waste time on needless entertainment. Remember, this form of leisure should be enjoyed responsibly, just like many other things in life. Be sure that you’re not wasting productive time when you’re watching television, and you’ll be able to achieve the perfect balance.

The television has a lot of advantages, but like all scientific inventions, while it provides a lot of entertainment and knowledge to us it also has some disadvantages. The main disadvantage of television is that by providing indoor entertainment to people it has decreased the level of social interaction between people. It has especially adversely affected family ties, because while in earlier years when there was no television, children and parents spent more quality time together, now they are just glued in front of the television and don't give a lot of time to each other. It can also influence kids in a bad way if they watch the programs full of violence and crime, but then that can be monitored by the parents and they can see to it that they do not watch anything that influences them negatively. As I see it, the major disadvantage of television is that it has weakened family bonds.

Television is one of the most important sources of communication these days. As everyone knows that the communication these days is being done either through print or electronic media and television is an integral part of the electronic media. There are several advantages of television like we all know that we can have a clear idea that what is happening in the world, we can have live information about the several events like sports and any other good or bad events happening on the globe.

One can have a weather forecast and accordingly plan several things before time. It is also a good source of entertainment which is very cheap and within the access of every one. Television has shrunk the distance of the world you can watch what is happening several thousand miles away from you. So in totality it is information from all over the world, and it is fun and enjoyment with convenience.

However along with some positive sides it has its disadvantages as well like watching too much of television also affects your eye and nerves. Television creates such a spell on children and in some cases it also effects the elders that they actually lose their own opinion they feel whatever is being shown on television is correct and should be practised as such. In such situation it is the responsibility of the broad caster to show what is safe to be shown on the television. But still several irresponsible television channels show content which is not be shown for every one like contents of sex, and violence etc.

Television is one of the best inventions of science but this technology also has some drawbacks. First disadvantage of Television is that it results in the wastage of time. If an individual spends the same time in some valuable work instead of watching Television, then he can get more valuable outcome. Secondly, it can badly affect the eye-sight. Thirdly, television can also create extremism among the people because there are a number of news channels which give magnified news of killing and harassment to the people. Moreover, television can also promote crime which is another disadvantage of television.

Television is one of the main source sof information. It has many advantages.  We get information about education and Islamic knowledge; we get more information about other topics. There are more disadvantages to television. If a person starts to watch television regularly then they will want to do everything which they see on the television, even ithough it may influence them in a  bad way -  like smoking.  If a boy watch a movie which is full of sex, violence and crime, he'll see and try to become like that. We should try to spent more time with our family and friends etc.

I think the same holds true for adults, on a slightly different level. I don't think it is healthy to plant ones self down in front of the TV for hours. I think one should do other things, get out, do puzzles to exercise your mind, interact with people, read a book, ect... Just to mix things up. 

TV has a lulling effect, something that I feel makes you lazy. I feel like a hypocrite, as I probably watch too much TV myself.

Studies have shown that watching television induces low alpha waves in the human brain. These are commonly associated with relaxed meditative states as well as brain states associated with suggestibility.  The brain is already in a receptive state, ready to absorb suggestions, within just a few seconds of the television being turned on. The logical part of the brain switches itself off. Subliminal messages are not necessary all advertisers have to do is flash a brand across the screen, and then attempt to make the viewer associate the product with something positive.  

It is the radiant light from a television set that is believed to induce the slower brainwaves, reading and writing both require higher brain wave states.

Review new answer There are various advantages and disadvantages of TV. The first advantage is that TV is an important form of communication media. Secondly, it is a good source of entertainment. Thirdly, TV also provides a lot of entertainment. Fourthly, TV is a good informational tool and the channels like National Geography can add a lot in our information. Moreover, some channels are also promoting education through TV. On the other hand, the major disadvantage is that wrong exposure of the children to the material transmitted on TV. It is very usual for small kids watching movies etc. TV can increase extremism in the public by spreading news quickly. Moreover, it has lowered our social associations like time we spend with our family, friends etc.
