The power of TV is unbelievable, thereupon no one should be surprised with the fact that politics do their best to use media the way they want. As a consequence, public television - instead of being objective - becomes watchable only by government's tight followers.
It's not the direction television was being supposed to move in. However, it definitely is too late to change anything. The manipulation has gone so far that there's no way back. If we want to experience the difference, we can try to watch tv on online. It's also one of possible options, nonetheless whether it's good, depends on each watcher.
Basically, if we want to watch tv on online, we need no additional supplies but the Internet connection. No cables, no cards, no decoders, and no antennas. It's cheap and - basically - trouble free. The access to channels from all over the world is unrestrained, therefore there truly is no limitation in what we're going to watch. However, there still are people who haven't got a computer or internet connection. As for them, online television is not a good option, then.
What else can we do if we don't want or cannot watch tv on online? There still is another, still quite popular though, option. And it's the TV by satellite. We all know those plate shaped antennas on the roof of each building.
These all are satellite antennas, and they're being used for watching the TV "from above". While the signal of traditional television is being spread by cables, satellite television is significantly different what makes it quite a good alternative. At first, the range of satellite is much wider, what results in increased number of satellite channels accessible.
At second, the channels accessible are not only the local ones, but also the channels from abroad. There is no thing better widening one's horizons than watching international television. On the other hand, satellite television is not resistant for difficult weather conditions. Sometimes even the rain is enough to interrupt in receiving the signal. Thereupon, satellite television still is less popular then online TV, and nothing is going to change this relation these days nor in the future. After all, the Internet wins once again.
