TV Programs: Getting Better or Worse?

in viet nam, tv programs have gotten better than 10 years ago: better quality of picture, of sound..and there are many channel too.so you have more choice. you can turn on the TV all day in order to get familiar to the accent of the reporter you like. and that's the way you can practice and improve your new language. all the chances which we are having today relates to the change of the world. now, the world get smaller so we can bring it to home. it suppose the belief that in the future, we can bring all the universe to home. and why not?

From my perspective, TV programs are getting worse in my country.
Especially, dramas are making more violent and uneducational stories for program rating. Our goverment should make strong regulation on this matter. TV is a public media. If we don't concern about the quality of the programs, our society will change in the near future.

TV programs are getting worse I think. TV companies make their programs too violent to watch.
Accordingly, it is not helpful to children. Children are usually imitating the scenes. Goverment should make strong regulation on this situation.

For the past 10 years, in Korea, TV program rating more opened and less exclusive.
So TV genre more various, like divorcement, violence and sex-appealing.
If see this in a positive view, it means that cultural liberty is more opened.
But the other side, This means that our children more easy to meet harmfulness program.
I think that nothing can prevent cultural liberty, so parent keep children from harmfulness program aptly.

I think, in my country (Vietnam), TV programs have improved very much. Cable TV service produces many interesting channels such as: HBO, Star Movies, Star World... about more 70 channels which we can watch (consist of national channels and foreign channels). pictures, sound are good. even though, we have a cinema in home. recently, many documentary programs have been very interesting, such as: Everest (two Vietnam men won Everest), MeKong river, Volga (telling about Ho Chi Minh),...
on the other hand, many games shows are boring, some films are violent,...... I think if you have children, you shouldn't install Cable TV in your house. that's all

I am Duarte, from Brasil. Here we have very good TV programs but we have poor of them too. I think we need to put out violence and sex from TV programs because it is dangerous to children and youngs personality and future. TV has chance to give us beautiful messages, culture, lessons and as customers we need to claim about together the TV owners. We need to built world´s peace.

TV programs are getting better if we talk about the sound, effects, variety of channels, but it's really getting worse when we talk about values. TV programs are only worried about money.

In my opinion, TV programs are growing day by day in quality and quantity, specially cable TV. There are a lot of channels and a lot of program such as films, game shows, documentaries, news, etc. Some are interesting and attract viewers, but some are boring. Almost films are violent and sexual. I like watching documentary. It offers a lot of knowledge, but rarely people stop by a channel which is showing on documentary.
The quantity of channels is increasing to satisfy multiple demand of viewers. However, we should pay attention to its quality. TV programs have to remain education and culture. But this seems to be distracted.
One more thing I would like to mention is there is a lot of advertising on TV nowadays. This sometimes makes viewers mad. They always change the channel whenever the advertising comes.
The last thing is almost game shows are nonsense and just for fun. Although there are more and more game shows created, there is none of them makes viewers actually interesting.
In sum, TV programs nowadays develop as storm. However, producers need to choose the best of them to launch so that viewers can feel either relaxed or being educated through each program.

My name is Ticiane, from Brazil. Today in TV, we watch many programs about violence and fight between people and family. Then I think in 10 years, people are going to be more worried about these questions, because they aren’t getting control of their kids anymore and are going to see programs will help in their human relationship.

I'm sure that TV programs are getting worse in our country. From the one hand, pictures and sound are better.There are a lot of channels: educational, entertaining,sport-channels,scientific and many others. But from the other hand,the quality and purposes of many programs are getting more entertaining rather than informational.The number of talk-shows and reality-shows really frightens me. Violence on TV influences much on the people and very often changes their minds.

hi my name is Javier,it s the first time that I get a webpage like this, I wanna thank to people whose were the creators for this idea.
tv programs in my country is real pain of head,all time you watch bored venezuela´s,colombian´s and peru´s soap operas.nothing personal but I hate people that waste time, for this reason I don`t watch tv.I prefer movies Only I watch news

It's difficult to say about TV programms during last 10 years in Russia, but since 2005 they have become worse in my opinion. Current affairs tell us only about violence, sometimes there are shown some full-length films, but there are also about crimes and something like that. You can watch sitcoms if you want, but they're not very interesting and are based on peoople's home problems. So now you can hear a phrase: "there is nothing interesting on TV today" more and more often.

I think reality shows are quite stupid, because there is no idea in them, they are not hilarious and don't keep us on the edge of our seats. Documentaries are also a little boring, but you can learn something new from it.
News are interesting. But they rerun them so often then they annoy sometimes.
And what about sitcoms.. I really like them. Maybe they are silly at times, but I prefer amusing TV programs.
Not all soap operas are interesting, but some of them are very gripping. They shoul be full of suspense, in other way they will failed.

Summarizing, I think sitcoms will suit for a company of my friends, but we will never see something, like reality shows.

In France, tv programs are better and worse; it depends on which tv we choose to watch the programs ; on my opinion, we are free to choose, so my favourite one is "ARTE" because this channel has a lot documentaries, and I am keen on this kind of program, very good selection of films and we can watch them in original version, a lot of programs of art, dancing, music, painting,...very good magazines on society, and the news are not a show to impress people but to inform people; Of course, I also like some programs on Frence5 and France3, the last one is more about programs on our areas in my country. I think that in the future, tv will more mobile for each one, catch up tv will be more and more an habit to use,in a way it is easier to see something at a convenient time, in another way individuality risk to be more important in that society and I am not really sure that it is good news.// SylVie B.
