Since the beginning of time, mankind has indulged in one form of entertainment or the other. This indulgence has occurred either in a participatory capacity or an observatory one. To put that more clearly, one might say, at every point, we have entertainers on the one hand and we have the entertained on the other. From the actor, to the comedian, musicians and even the street performers, the concept of entertainment is one of planet wide significance. In the earlier stages, the theatres were a major source of entertainment through numerous plays. During the last century however, the concept of television and radio, wherein sounds and pictures are recorded and broadcast over the air, has gone further to widen the scope of entertainment and bring it to most of our doorsteps.
The role and effect of technology in the field of entertainment today cannot be overstated. These days, one only needs to take a quick gander at ones immediate surroundings and one is almost sure to find a device which can be used to stream/broadcast both live and pre-recorded moments in entertainment history. Technology has further use as a digital store of memories and carries out this function via CDs, DVDs, hard drives and various other means of digital storage. This has given entertainers added immortality as, even long after they are dead, their previous works can be viewed and enjoyed by a wide audience. With the advent of the internet, these days, one can entertain oneself almost anywhere as one just needs a strong enough connection.
Without a doubt, entertainment has been greatly improved by its ability to be broadcast over great distances, aiding convenience. That being said however, with ever advancing scope of technology, broadcasting is gradually being given a run for its money by new developments such as video playback and recording equipment. These days one is less likely to spend a lot of time watching shows shown via networks and more likely to simply watch the recorded versions. Technology has given us the option of missing shows and watching them later at our convenience, rather than having to wait for re-runs, since they can just be recorded.
In that same vein, one needs to take a look at the internet. The concept of the internet is all too familiar with most people round the world. Through various means of streaming, and downloading, one can watch and get songs, videos, as well as other forms of entertainment, and a lot of times, even for free. Content downloaded off the internet can be stored in computers and other devices and revisited at convenience.
The internet has increased efficiency of information and entertainment spread as most times, one can even get pieces of information long before they are broadcast off the networks. Aside from this, it also provides information on a wide array of interests bordering on almost anything one can think off, from sports, to fashion and even games.
Furthermore, all this is done at a very impressive speed which only adds a feather to the metaphorical plumage. In this modern day and society, arts and entertainment have attained a behemoth level of importance in the day to day activities of our lives. Technological advancements such as the internet have given the concept of entertainment a more informal, familiar outlook.
These days, one need not just be a viewer, but can actively participate in the entertainment of the populace via the internet. With further advancements in technology, one would be right to state that the future of arts and entertainment is indeed bright.
