MUNOZ, GUILLERMO  y  JUDIKIS, JUAN CARLOS. Television reception practices in high school students from Punta Arenas. Magallania [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.1, pp.127-136. ISSN 0718-2244.

Despite new technologies that have emerged in recent times and that have been inserted in the daily routines of a large segment of the population; television continues emerging as one of the main cultural phenomena. While there are broad and diverse national and international studies that explore the relationship of certain social groups with the television media, there is no research in Punta Arenas that provides insight into the specific experiences of social groups that inhabit this geographical and socio-cultural context. This study identifed the experiences of high school students from Punta Arenas with television from an area which wasn’t limited only to the specific interaction with the television apparatus, but including aspects related to their daily routine in schools, family and social environment in general. Thus, using a qualitative approach, various practices of television reception thematically consistent at group level were identifed through social discourses of students from various schools of Punta Arenas, despite maintaining different dynamics at an individual level. These are the structuring of a daily routine that determines the interaction with television, the conviction of the students on the infuence of media, its relationship with social institutions, the preference of certain television contents, the dynamics and ways of watching TV and the existence of a critical speech towards television programming. In this way, as other investigations have agreed that television helped limit the hegemony of school as the only means to access information, this study also concluded that the school remains at the top of social interactions of the students. In this context, and noting the significance in the transformation of the schools that may or are have already been provoked by the information technologies, further work is required in order to consider the investigations around the interaction of various social groups- children, adolescents, adults, elderly, etc…, with these displays, not only in the school context, but in daily routines.
