In a social and cultural universe in which television assumes an important role in the area of media reception, as a technical and communicational device of recognized impact on a global scale, it seems important to analyse and produce critical considerations about television, especially because, years after its appearance, television continues to elicit conflicting research results. Moreover, on a more complex level, television is involved in a more profound social and cultural process than the simple act of watching TV. Subsequently, the purpose of this paper is to consider these issues, revealing the relationship of reciprocity between television, the construction of cultural identities and the way society works.

Keywords: Television; Culture; Society
