Entertainment is a broad concept that includes all kinds of leisure activities, from art and music to food, sports and movies. It can be positive or negative, arousing or boring, as long as it is not harmful or below human dignity. Familiar forms of entertainment have the capacity to cross multiple media and to have a seemingly unlimited potential for creative remix, which has ensured their longevity.
