What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is the consumption of entertainment in any form. It includes movies, TV shows, or series, music, listening to podcasts or songs, playing musical instruments, reading novels, short stories, or poetry for enjoyment and relaxation, playing video games, sports activities, participation in physical or mental challenges, and the creation or appreciation of visual arts. It also refers to live performances such as theater, dance, comedy shows, and music. According to Oliver and Barstsch (2010), entertain-ment is an activity that is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience, offers pleasure, requires an audience, and occurs in a passive form. The familiar forms of entertainment have demonstrated a seemingly unlimited potential for remix.
