A present, we live in the age of science and technology. Television is an important mass media. The programmes of television are entertaining as well as educative. Television channels are now working through satellite. These channels have become accessible to us because of dish antenna that receivea programmes from the satellite. Popularity of satellite television is ever on the incease, though they are not unmixed blessing. Some channel and Discovery Channel telecast highly informative and educative programmes. Some channela like BBC and the CNN provide us world news round the clock. Some channels provide pure entertainment by songs, dances and music. Some 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 confirm to the traditional of Bangladeshi culture. These may have very bad effects on the minds of teenagers. 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 even good thing has its abuse. So we have to stop the abuse of satellite TV and ensure the bandit of it through proper care, good will and self-control.
