Sky culture and its impact
Introduction: In the late twentieth century, astonishing and revolutionary advances have been made in satellite or artificial satellite based communication systems. This has made it possible to bring the communication and broadcasting channels of different countries of the world within the boundaries of one family. As a result, if we want, we get the opportunity to watch various television programs from home and abroad almost all the time while sitting at home. The opportunity to watch these programs has been through Dish Antenna and cable network. Through these programs, we can learn about various events and news in the international arena, as well as enjoy a variety of entertainment and educational programs in different countries. But already these programs are beginning to have both positive and negative opposite effects on our social life. As a result, there has been a mixed reaction to the pros and cons of satellite TV.
Bangladesh in the era of satellite broadcasting: In 1992, the first CNN. And later with the satellite connection with BBC Television and with the approval of the use of dish antenna, the opportunity of foreign TV broadcasting in Bangladesh was made open to all. Installing giant dish antennas on the roof of the house to enjoy foreign events was very expensive at first. As a result, its use was mainly limited to the rich. But later, the cable network was created and the programs of different channels were shown with cable connection from house to house for a fixed monthly fee. As a result, it is possible to watch programs on different channels in different urban areas, even in many remote areas. As a result of the introduction of satellite technology, innumerable customers are able to enjoy various programs including information, education, literature, entertainment, sports. In addition to BTV programs sitting at home, CNN. BBC, National Geography, Discovery, Ekushey TV, Channel I, ATN Bangla, GTV, PTV, MTV, ETV, G-Cinema, Star Plus, Star Movies, Star Sports, DD Metro, DD-1, DD-6, Sony TV , Jain TV, Asia Music, AXN, Cartoon Network etc. As a result, the world's ultra-modern educational, healthy entertainment and a variety of exciting programs are constantly being shown on the TV screen in the drawing room. Now the programs are not limited to BTV channels, they are available on various channels as per one's wish by pressing the number with the remote control in hand. Just as it has provided an opportunity to be associated with foreign cultures and ideologies, it has also created fears of being isolated and eradicated from one's own cultural heritage.
Useful: Satellite TV connects us with the culture of the world. Through informational programs like BBC, CNN, we are able to get instant information about information and events from different parts of the world. The field of knowledge about the world is expanding by watching the programs of National Geography and Discovery Channel. In a word, our close connection with world culture is being created through satellite TV. Our vision is to expand in the competitive world of the 21st century. We are now easily enjoying many films, documentaries and programs based on the greatest contribution of world culture at great expense. In a poor country like ours, all these opportunities have come through satellite TV communication.
Negative aspects: The programs aired on satellite TV are having a negative effect on our minds and thinking in many ways. The provocative intoxication of gross entertainment is getting us down. Exotic ceremonies are bringing about significant changes in the traditions and values of the younger generation. Their hair style, dress, English and Hindi accents are making an impression on foreigners. They are forgetting the separate existence and features of their own country, language and culture. He is distracted from the path of dealing with the existing reality and is obsessed with fantasy and luxury. Unreal, supernatural, imaginative, thrilling events and stories are presented in any program. These ceremonies create gross sexuality, horrific bruises, and violent tensions. High quality literary culture and human values do not find a place in it. The system of promoting and enjoying these programs, which are completely inconsistent with our country's own cultural heritage and values, may eventually take the form of cultural aggression.
Cultural aggression: Satellite TV has become clear in various studies on the role of cultural aggression in developing countries. South Korea has complained that the influence of satellite TV in Japan, Hong Kong and the United States has bankrupted its national TV industry and weakened its cultural system. In neighboring India, Western entertainment programs and films have had such an impact on the upper and lower class youth and youth communities that the conscious people of that country are concerned. BTV viewership has been declining in our country since the introduction of Dish Antenna. Foreign influences on our TV are gradually hurting the country's own culture and values.
Conclusion: In short, our country is suffering from cultural aggression and confusion due to satellite TV. If we are not aware from now on, the current generation of the country will forget the heritage, its own history and cultural identity due to the influence of satellite TV. There will be a gradual deterioration of one's own values. As a result, their human values will be ruined by the attraction of extra foreigners, tastes, cheap lifestyles. So we need to keep a sharp eye on the social, political and cultural impact of satellite TV. In the absence of new and clearer legal restrictions on new additions to technology, the loopholes in the old law need to be addressed and the new problems that satellite TV is creating in social and cultural life need to be addressed immediately. We certainly want to keep the doors and windows of the progress of science in the world open, but in doing so, we cannot accept that the stench of filthy subculture will spread in our society.
