What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is any activity or event that provides amusement, recreation, distraction or pleasure. Entertainment can be provided in a number of ways such as: movies, music, sports and social activities. Entertainment can be at a personal level, such as an individual choosing what to watch on television or listen to on their iPod; or on a grand scale, with theatrical performances for thousands of people. Entertainment is a highly adaptable art form with the ability to transcend different media. This has ensured its popularity and longevity. Entertaiment has been a major source of revenue for many industries. For example, the film and music industry have enjoyed a steady stream of income over the last century.
