Satellite TV channels are the channels that telecast program of varied interest with the help of a satellite. These channels have become assessable to us because of the dish antenna that receives programs from the satellite. Popularity of satellite television is ever on the increase, though they are not unmixed blessing. Some satellite channels are very beneficial. Channels such as the National Geography Channel telecast highly informative and educative programs. Some channels like the BBC and the CNN provide us world news
round the clock. Some channels provide pure entertainment by songs, dances and music. Some channels particularly the cartoon channels are favorite to the children. However there are many channels that may cause cultural decay and moral degradation. Channels like Star Movies, Star World, Fashion TV etc often show obscene film, violence and half naked female figures that do not conform to the traditional Bangladesh Culture. These may have very bad effects on the minds of the tenegeers. If we want to foster and enrich our own culture we have to restrict the access of such channels and introduce those channels that are helpful for upholding our own identity and own culture. But we must not forget that every good thing has its abuse. So we have to stop the abuse of satellite channels and ensure the benefit of it through proper care, good will and self control.
