Entertaiment is a form of recreation in which consumers engage in consumer activities for enjoyment and relaxation. It includes movies, television, music, sports and games, literature, and visual art. It also encompasses other activities such as playing games and engaging in self-gratification. Oliver and Barstsch (2010) define entertainment as an activity that is understood objectively, involves communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience to exist, and occurs in a passive form.
