New York, 21 November 2022 (TDI): World Television Day is being observed today across the world. This day brings attention to the growing importance of television in the modern, changing world.

World Television Day is observed globally to recognize the growing significance of technology from the early 20th century in the modern world.


The first World Television Forum was organized by the UN on November 21 and 22, 1996. Here, top media professionals gathered to talk about the growing importance of television and to think about ways to improve their cooperation.

In this regard, UN officials noted that television had the power to draw attention to conflicts. It can also increase public awareness of dangers to peace and security.

They added that television focuses attention more sharply on social and economic issues. There is no doubt that television plays a significant role in influencing public opinion and has a significant presence and impact on global politics.

Therefore, UN General Assembly voted to declare November 21 as World Television Day. Moreover, this day is observed not to celebrate the television object itself but to honor it as a symbol of communication and globalization.

Television was acknowledged by the UN as influencing decisions and serving as an advocate for the entertainment sector. World Television Day, however, is meant to honor the idea it represents.

It shows the philosophy of openness and transparency of global issues rather than the electronic device itself. In the modern world, television stands for communication and globalization, according to the United Nations.

“The combination between emerging and classic modes of broadcast gives a wonderful chance to raise awareness about serious issues. These issues affect our communities and our planet,” according to the UN.

Even though the content is produced on a variety of platforms, television remains the most popular way for consumers to watch videos.

Thus, it was recognized that television was a key medium for influencing, directing, and enlightening public opinion. Its influence on international affairs could not be ignored, nor could its impact or presence.
