Politics decide what is going to be presented. Usually - only the thing they'd like to watch. Things that agree with their vision of world, country, and politic. As a consequence, public television becomes monotonic in the most unacceptable way. If you didn't follow the president, why would you be constrained on listening how wonderful he is? Political manipulation is the first argument why people decide to watch tele online instead of traditional, public TV.
What else should be mentioned?
The two most annoying things in television are politics and commercials and - honestly - it's difficult to state which ones are worse. Unfortunately, they usually walk together. Once one politic finishes what he wanted to say, another one begins. Once they both finish, there's a great time for commercials. And so on and so forth. As for a usual TV watcher, it truly is annoying.
Unfortunately, once again there's nothing usual people could do to change the situation. Or... The option is to watch tele online. Among a few other possibilities, this one seems the most easily acceptable for the most populous group. Only the technophobes would have anything against.
However, it still is not the end of public television drawbacks. If the politics and commercials are not enough, the attention should be paid to the choice of channels. How many channels public television provides its watchers with? Three, four, maybe five? It depends on the country. Nevertheless, why should anyone remain constrained on these few channels only? To watch politically manipulated news services? To watch propagandist movies describing "the only true history"?
It's difficult to explain what has happened to public television. Unfortunately, the point is that it's not going to work any longer. As a consequence, no one should be surprised with the fact that so many people decide to watch tele online instead. With unrestrained access to channels from all over the world and better and better quality, internet television becomes the best source of TV as a whole.
'If it's good, it's never enough,' they used to say. However, probably they haven't mentioned television. Curiously, the popularity of today's TV made this relation actual even in case of television. Weird? Unexpected? Not. Just the way things used to go. Maybe it would be better for people to watch less TV, maybe it would be not. It all depends.
However, there are people who don't watch it at all, and also the people who don't do anything else. For all of them different types of television are being prepared so that everyone could choose something that suits him best. It doesn't matter if he prefers to watch tele online or through the satellite. The point is he has plenty of options to choose from what makes choosing truly problematic. Each of options could be good, nonetheless not for all. Which one to choose and when? Or - maybe - it would be better to choose all of them at once?
