The programs of all the channels are not beneficial. Some channels like Discovery, National Geography, Animal Planet, ESPN, etc. telecast many informative and educative programs. On the other hand, some channels like TV-6, MTV, HBO, AXN, etc. cause cultural decay and moral degradation because they are full of nudism and vulgarism.

We also have to find out how to derive the best benefit from satellite TV channels keeping its evil up to the minimum limit. For this, the authority should keep an eye open so that standard and elegant programs are produced. Again, available access to vulgar channels must be restricted. Otherwise, moral degradation will take place and social stability will be destroyed.
