What does this holiday celebrate?
In December 1996 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 November as World Television Day commemorating the date on which the first World Television Forum was held in 1996.

Opposition Information
Unusually opposition to this declaration, expressed by 11 abstentions to a vote on the resolution. The delegation from Germany said:

There are already three United Nations days
encompassing similar subjects:

World Press Freedom Day
World Telecommunication Day
World Development Information Day.

To add another day does not make much sense... [T]elevision is only one means of information and an information medium to which a considerable majority of the world population has no access... That vast majority could easily look at World Television Day as a rich man's day. They do not have access to television. There are more important information media and here I would mention radio in particular. We think it is more important to enhance the role of those media than that of television.  documentation_license
