I believe television is an icon/object that will constantly be around. A television is something that portrays the outside world from your home. There is constantly something new on it that keeps your interested and the television itself is also always changing.
I chose Social learning theory, as one of my favorite theories and I personally think this plays a huge role in the history of television. The television is always getting better and improved and if people continue to buy the new updates of it, and people see others they will continue to buy them and keep them popular. I think if televisions were to stay basic and generic, yes they would still be used, but would they be fun to watch stuff on in this day and age compared to the changes and updates of everything else around us. If televisions weren’t to change as much as cell phones, types of radios and other electronics we easily would have lost sight and them. Due to the constant updating and new types with HD, or DVR being available on them, and people realizing how great it is, people continue to use the television.
I believe that the television has always played a huge part, and though there used to not be as many channels it was what people depended on, it used to have minimal channels but still did the job. Now the television has hundreds and thousands of channels depending on what network you have.
I personally do not see the television going away in the new future. I only see television getting better and drawing people in and continuing to be addicted to it. I believe the television even has plenty more of new ways, some of which are being created now that I couldn’t even think of them coming up with.
