Could you live without television for a week?

Posted on: October 14, 2008

Despite the arrival of new technologies in the last decades, television is still the first broadcasting media by popular choice. However, some of us are now able to decide which contents we choose.

I’m one of those who day-by-day are watching TV less and less and are getting used to other media like, for example, Internet. The differences between these two are common knowledge, but there’s one of them which stands out from the others: the capability of choice.

That doesn’t mean that manipulation and control over people are excluded, but at least your information limits spread wide, compared to what television gives you.

In short, I’m sure that I could live without ‘tele’ for a week, or even more, just because I can find the same contents in other places and, as I said, no one guides you there or tries to convince you to watch what they want to sell you.

Hola DoKiÈh, me ha pasado como a ti que cada vez veo menos tele… y es que es una verguenza la cantidad de programas nacionales (chile) de los cuales no puedo rescatar nada valioso… ni siquiera una simple y pura entretención.

Pero si he descubierto un par de canales en mi cable, que me gusta mucho oirlos mientras estoy en internet!

Un gran saludo!

Hola , yo tambien opte por dejar a un lado la tv, de hecho le corte el cable para conectarlo a la electricidad, me parece que es verdad el hecho que “Advertisment causes need”(Ls comerciales crean necesidad) y uno esta completamente sometido a la programacion que haya y a la informacion que ellos decidad entregar.
Prefiero escoger lo que va entrar en mi mente.
