Some people think having more TV channels is good because they will have
more choices, while others think it is not good because programs’ quality is
lower. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Gone are the days when people’s choice for TV programs was extremely
limited, but easy access to a growing number of TV channels arouses various
argues for citizens. Before rendering my position, I aim to critically discuss
both views and come up with my own opinion.
Those who support more TV channels believe that they make it easier for
individuals to choose different TV programs according to personal tastes even
though they are with diverse interests. For instance, some young people tend to
enjoy recreational or exciting programs while the elderly are more interested in
news channels. Furthermore, an easy access to various kinds of programs gives
great convenience for individuals to meet their mentally developmental needs.
Specifically, some children may watch educative programs to broaden their
horizons while certain adults are likely to watch series in order to enrich
their leisure time.
Nevertheless, some people claim that more programs does not mean higher
quality. First and foremost, there is no distinct line between high-quality and
low-quality programs, resulting in the production of TV programs with poor
quality compared with excellent similar programs. On the other hand, the
professional quality of program producers is not capable of keeping up with the
number of TV programs. It is inevitable that a number of channels are poor
apologies. Even worse, it is difficult to control the process of talent shows
which may include unexpected scenes, exerting an undesirable effect on people’s,
especially on youngster’s psychological development.
As far as I am concerned, although increasing TV channels have
shortcomings, such as negatively influence individuals’ mental development
because of unhealthy programs on TV, they are in a position to give enormous
satisfaction to residents who have various needs as long as certain poor-quality
programs are restricted and censored by authorities concerned.
