Television has become an important part of our daily life and it is a useful addition to our fast-moving world of high-technologies. But how does it influence our life?

From one hand, TV can be beneficial as it can help you to get out from everyday problems and relax after a hard day at work or school. What’s more, the amount of different TV programs is so large that there is something to suit everyone, even the most sophisticated taste. In addition to this, there are lots of educational programs so you have an opportunity to get more information just watching TV.

On the other hand, TV is considered to be one of the reasons of the rise of violence. Nowdays media is most likely to report crime rather than positive things. Negative reporting leads to viewership. And criminals are often shown is a way that makes them and their lifestyle look glamorous and desirable. To make matters worse, there is too much advertising on TV and this can make people want things they don’t really need. Sometimes they can’t afford it and end up stealing things. Furthermore, TV can be bad for your eyesight and health in general as you spend hours lying on the sofa.

All in all, TV affects our life in a way that no other media can. As to me, I prefer not to watch TV often, just for entertainment.
