What is your opinion about global television?

Nowadays television is an ongoing concern which many nations have to deal with. According to the resent research, a global television channel which will appeal to the entire world population is possible, but in order to make it work, the tastes of people in various countries need to be taken into consideration.

It seems to me that, global television channel should be establish for a number of reasons. First of all, television is one of the most popular forms of media. If f you glance at the television schedule in any newspaper, you will find a great variety of channels which transmit a good and bad selection of entertaining programmes. But this isn’t just enough. Frequently, you get tired of checking what it shown on all the channels and this is the main reason why global television channel should be created.

What is more, we should pay attention to the tastes of people in heaps of countries, because they have different programme pr references. For example, 80% of the people who took part in the research wanted to see full-length films, while the others showed a liking for home-produced news and domestically produced news.

In addition to this, programming should left to television controllers rather th

han political or religious officials because then television audiences are certainly happier. The majority of people are disappointed to have a state-run television, whereas regions which have independent programming, got a clean bill of health.

Opponents of this view say that, global television’s time is not yet. Firstly, it would have to omit certain programmes due to the unpopularity in certain regions. They are also likely to believe, that it is impossible to create an attracting channel and at the same time avoid cultural differences. Furthermore, they are convinced that the idea of global television will be restricted to a limited number of channels and to specific types of programmes. The options for the next twenty or thirty years will be mo ore in the area of regional television, but not the global one.

All things considered, global television is certain to strengthen the position of English as the top language for media in the world and may undermine the status of other languages. But despite increasing internationalism, national differences remain and there is nothing to be able to destroy them.
