What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad category of activities or things that are done for recreation and enjoyment. Examples include watching movies and television, listening to music, playing musical instruments, reading books or magazines, participating in sports, playing video games and creating visual art. Entertainment is also a major component of many businesses, including the film and recording industries. Business has been slow in those sectors, but consumers have discovered bargain hunting on the Internet, downloading free music through file sharing programs and trading CDs with friends. The word entertainment is derived from the Latin intertenere, through the Indo-European root ten, meaning to stretch or expand something.
