Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Why is Latin American Television Dominated by Entertainment Programmes. It needs to be at least 2000 words.
The percentage of viewers who are paying for TV channels increased drastically to 22% from the year 2008 to 2010. There are many countries influenced by the contents available in digital media like television. Though there might not be proper contents available in the broadcast of a television programme people are prone to watch entertainment channels in their leisure time drastically. This essay will discuss the reasons that lead to the dominance of entertainment channels in Latin America.The demand for amusement and entertainment in people increased as a result of the leisure time that people had after the industrial revolution.
Before the industrial revolution, people had more work and they required proper rest so that they could overcome the physical exhaustion. After the world increased a step towards modernization physical activities became low and there was more of mental pressure rather than physical pressure. Hence in order to calm down, the mental exercise media and entertainment channels became one of the most common media to reduce the amount of stress gained in daily life. Moreover, the leisure time that people have in the modern world is more compared to social life in the nineteenth century and before.
Latin Americans are more prone to television compared to people of other societies. In Latin America, the interference of social media through the internet is not much compared to other parts of the world. People residing in Brazil, Mexico and other Latin American countries are more dependent on Television compared to other forms of media. Computers are not commonly used as a medium of entertainment. The population of Latin America is mostly influenced by the academic field of television and studies.
Portuguese and Spanish is the most common language used in Latin America. Latin American people because of speaking a different language other than English are more reliable on television .broadcasts rather than using the internet (Miller, 2003, p.38). There are many channels that provide different type of entertainment programmes for the people of Latin America.
