A medium (the singular form of media) just means a form of communication/ means by which information is transmitted. So television is just one medium; one of many media.

When people talk about "the media" (and especially when they're complaining) they usually mean TV and newspapers; sometimes radio, magazines and the internet as well. These are what is usually meant by media. However, anything used for conveying information is technically a medium, so the term could also apply to books, brochures, public information leaflets and posters too.

The words medium and media come from the Latin word for "middle (thing.)"
