Thus, by sitting in our homes, we can watch all types of programmes which are live telecasted or repeated programmes. We can watch movies on television at any time. So, watching movies is good entertainment for one's life by sitting at home. Many movies, dramas like love stories, sad stories, comedy, cooking programs, live news, games, etc. all are shown on television at different channels of different countries.

The politicians, scientist, social workers can also talk to the people directly through the television. Thus the benefit of Television are numerous, we cannot count them all.

Television can also help in improving the evils of society. It can help to do better for the society in the evils of dowry, drinking and gambling etc.

If a person has close eye contact with the television it affects the eyesight especially for little children who always use to sit close to the television. The student also went on wrong directions by watching wrong movies, dramas and channels. During their studies students will not pay full attention towards their education at the end what will happen, they will fail. The usages of television all the time may increase the bill of electricity.
