To our Generation and younger it is a no brainy, but if I ask my parents, I know what’s the answer.
The internet is brilliant, informative, factual and a wonderland with endless possibilities.
But remember the television had its hay day from the late 1920’s that is a long time ago. Companies saw an opportunity to advertise on them (adverts) same like those irritating banners on the web. And there was a market for film and Series makers to have their share of the pie, WWW opened up markets for Developers, Graphic Designers and most Information Technology employees.
I thanks the Inventors Philo Farnsworth and Charles Francis Jenkins for the Television
And BIG thanks to Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee for the WEB
So Television is like a Computer in more ways than you think.
We hear constantly how bad the internet is for kids with paedophiles and criminals lurking behind the nice looking FB profile pic. Imagine the outcry when porn was introduced to television in those years when woman had to be conservative.
But they was controlled by Society and Laws, so too can the internet
We should thank the Inventors of the TV, VCR, and Digital television, in an essence this must have been the brainchild or architect for the Personal Computer which gave you the Internet which is a lot like Digital TV
