I don’t agree with the statement that attending a live performance such as a play, concert or sport event is more enjoyable than watching the same event on TV, because there are many disadvantages in attending a real performance.
Firstly, there is too much trouble in attending a real performance. You have to buy tickets, sometimes stand in a long queue; you have plan the trip and set out a few hours before the show started. After arrival at the theatre or stadium, you will have great trouble finding parking place. During a sport event, your personal safety might be jeopardized: the sports fans might get too excited about the event, and become a mob. Many people might have heard the news that a girl was killed by a puck during a hockey game. If you take public transport or a taxi home after the show, you might find it very difficult to catch a bus or find a cab.
Secondly, the seating arrangement can greatly affect the comfort of watching the show. If your seat is far from the stage or playground, you cannot even see the show clearly. People’s heads and cheers will distract from viewing the show, and in the end you do not even know whom you have seen in a play, or winds in a sports event!
Thirdly, there is no flexibility in a real show. After you have been through so much trouble and eventually start to enjoy the show, you might find that you are quite disappointed about the show after all. Unlike watching TV programs, you neither simply change channels nor leave the theatre in the middle of a concert or play. You might spend a lot of money to suffer from a show that you do not like.
On the contrary, watching TV at home, where you can make yourself a cup of coffee, sit back comfortably and relax, watch the show closely, and enjoy the realistic image and sound from your SONY home-theatre system. Besides, you can watch programs whatever you like, and go to bed right when the show has ended.
Although many people enjoy the excitement of watch a real show, I think nothing is more convenient and comfortable than watch TV at home.

Some people like to attend a live performance while others think that watching the same event on television is more enjoyable. To me, I choose watching an event on television because it is easier and not limited and you have choices and can know more details for the event.
Watching an event is easier than attending it. You need only a TV set in your room. You do not have to buy ticket or drive to the place where the event is performed. You can drink some coffee or tea when you want. But if you attend a concert or a play, you have no freedom to drink or do something else. In addition, at home, you don’t need to worry about the traffic jam and being late for the event, so you have a light mood to enjoy the event.
The other advantages of watching an event is that you can enjoy it any time and you can choose what you like from many channels. But if you attend a real event and find you have no interest on it, you would regret than you have wasted the time and money. Watching it on television can avoid it. If you are interested in the play, you can stay on it; if you are bored, you can change the channel to find some programs that are interesting.
Watching an event on television has other advantages in that you can get more details of the event from the interpretation. You can understand the background, the present situation and such information of the event. But if you attend it, you cannot get these information’s.
I choose watching an event in television. I think it is more enjoyable than attending a live performance.

To many people, attending a live performance, such as a melodrama, a concert, or sporting events is so incredibly attractive that they will go all out to get a ticket, regardless of the expense or the difficulty involved. But why not enjoy the performance on television while you can comfortably lie on your sofa or couch with popcorn at hand? That is because attending live performances provides you with far more enjoyment than watch it on TV.
In a live performance, you will feel that you are in the company of many friends who are indulged in the same interest, who can share your sorrow or pleasure or excitement. This kind of resonance at heart is so rarely sensed in our daily life that this one reason itself is sufficient enough for many people to attend a live performance. While watching it on TV, we certainly find it hard to feel the emotion sharing, and our loneliness is hardly mitigated.
Furthermore, attending a live performance gives you a sense of participation that cannot be replaced by watching on TV. Live performance is an interaction between the audience and the performers, and both parts of the performance decide whether it will be a wonderful one. In this way, you may lament or laugh, may sob or smile as you are so influenced by the misfortune or happiness of the characters. You may fall into the indescribably intoxication while listen to a favorite piece of music. And correspondingly, the performers will receive the response of their audience and act accordingly. So the final success of the performance results also from the participation and interaction of the audience, of which you are a member.
With the foregone advantages, we may say that attending the live performance is definitely much more enjoyable than TV watching.
