Television has become the most popular entertainment in our home life. Now fewer and fewer people go out in the evening, preferring to stay at home and enjoy themselves.
In Russia people can choose among lots of channels. Some of them are commercial: they are Discovery, Travel Channel. The others, such as Russia 1, belong to the federal government.
There is a special channel broadcasting lots of sports events such as championships, competitions, races, games and interviews with sportsmen and sportswomen. There are also several channels transmitting regional programmes and news and a channel “Culture”, composed of cultural programmes.
As a rule, adults prefer to watch news. As for programmes for children, on Russian TV we have a special channel, called “Сarousel”, where educational programmes, animated cartoons and films are on all through the day.
Of course, we can call some TV programmes really informative and entertaining. Among them there are “KVN”, “What? Where? When”, “Romanticism of Romance” and others. I like to watch TV .
