The word television is usually abbreviated to TV. It is an electrically operated device that beams moving images along with sound. It is a technological invention that has transformed the way we receive news and views from around the world. It has made it possible to watch news, and enjoy entertainment beamed from all over the world in the comfort of one’s home.

The TV is a portable piece of equipment. Initially the invention allowed viewers to watch programmes in black and white. After the black-and-white TV came the colour TV. The colour TV made it possible to watch programmes in colours as close to reality. The kind of screens, on which programmes are beamed, has also evolved over time. From the initial curved screens, nearly flat screens have been developed making the images even more realistic.

        Every coin has two sides, we should take only positive side. We are responsible for our deeds. But of course, govt is regulating the television broadcasting by allowing complaints from public and taking necessary steps whether it is foreign or local channel.
