  • Are television and radio not sociable
    Television is not directly sociable yet content on a screen can enable viewers to feel an interaction. As a viewer following a television show can allow viewers to feel like they are an external character. Obviously this depends on the program, some channels can offer different media content to watch. Some television channels major selling point is interaction, especially with television sales programmes. So all in all, depending on the content very much depends on the interaction between programs.
    Radio offers a more direct sociable aspect than television. It’s the presenter or DJ’s job to keep listeners engaged to their show. You often find that the presenter speaks to the majority rather than a minority.
    Adverts between television and radio also have a interaction for viewers and listeners.
