    World Television Day is a day of global celebration that is being celebrated across the world on November 21. In times of internet, with people engaged to their laptops and mobile screens, does television still hold importance, one may ask.

    As Per the United Nations, television continues to be the single largest source of video consumption. “The number of TV households across the world will rise from 1.63 million in 2017 to 1.74 billion by 2023,” the global body said.

    World Television Day stands as a reminder of the power of visual media and how it helps in shaping public opinion and influencing world politics.

    The history of World Television day begins as such:

    The first World Television Forum took place on November 21 in 1996 and the United Nations General Assembly chose this day to mark World Television Day.

     Meet-ups at local and global levels take place on this day to raise awareness among people about the role television plays in communication and globalisation.

    World Television Day also marks the commitment of governments, news organisations and individuals to deliver objective information in times when accuracy of content on social media is questionable.
