What is Entertaiment?



Entertaiment (or entertainments) are a broad and inclusive term, ranging from the individual who chooses private entertainment from an increasingly large array of pre-recorded products, to a banquet adapted for two people, to an entire city or even the world. In the broadest sense, it covers all activities that cause a positive emotional experience and provides enjoyment and amusement. However, it may also have a more serious purpose, as in the case of ceremonial events, religious festivals or satire.

According to Bates and Ferri (2010), the definition of entertainment consists of six elements: it is understood objectively; involves communication between text and audience; requires external stimulus; offers pleasure; and involves audience passivity.
