Jornal Nacional[edit]

I know there's an article as a source but it isn't true Jornal Nacional is watched by 80 million people daily because that's more than half of Brazil's population. Senhora do Destino was watched by 30 millions according to Revista Veja.

1984 Dictatorship Protest[edit]

I took out the sentences, "On January 24, 1984, the network didnt reveal that a protest in Sao Paulo was against the dictatorship. It said the people when there to celebrate Sao Paulo's anniversary." While it might've been true, during that time the government had censures to censure the anti-government views. Saopaulo1 03:57, Apr 29, 2005 (UTC)

Ok, freedom of the press was certainly limited in that period. But even if Rede Globo had had its reasons not to air the correct information (which is extremely argueable, since that network is known to have been an important supporter of the dictatorial military government) it wouldn't change the fact that that news report was aired. I mean, you can't suppress reference to that fact simply because you believe the network had justifiable reasons to lie about the protest. Besides, I dont't think Rede Globo (as a corporation) really had an anti-government stand at that time.

I think we should check the source (maybe the Channel Four documentary) and put that piece of information back (in a less macarronic English, please) Leschatz 17:51, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

The fact is that while other networks, like the then just arrived Manchete aired live coverage of the protests, Globo decided not to do so because of its preference for the militar dictatorship that had given Globo plenty of privileges. What's more, Globo, instead of ignoring those protests, a behavior that could have been understood under the fear of governamental censorship, lied openly inventig a story that wasn't true. Try search "diretas ja" and "Manchete". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.32.254.43 (talk) 23:10, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

The picture used[edit]

The picture in the article is absolutely horrible! I vote we take it out, as it contributes nothing to the article. If a picture is to be used, it should be something representative of Globo, like their symbol, not a random picture from a not-particularly-popular show.--Vertigo200 01:58, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

LOL Agree and upload fair use logos. I think we need a good Projac photo, from a press release of Globo. --Brazil4Linux 14:11, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

This is an encyclopedia article, not an advertisement[edit]

The article claims that Rede Globo is "(...) recognized as the world's biggest TV network in territorial extent, encompassing all of the States of Brazil." and a few other things that have no basis for. There's an absolute need to give references for such claims. --Rafa 07:42, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Also, the information regarding being the 4th largest in the world don't have actual sources, but a snippet in a gossip column, that also do not cite sources. This reference [1] should be deleted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2620:0:1025:1:BE30:5BFF:FEDF:DA65 (talk) 16:07, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Globo Ratings[edit]

Does anyone know where can Brazil TV ratings be found?

Globo and Politics[edit]

My suggestion was to some one write about the interference of "Globo" in the Political process in Brazil.

Since here vote is an Obligation not a Right, and most people are not capable of voting, They vote in what Globo tells them to vote...

Believe or not, Lula (squidwart) "Our dictator" was only elected 'cause Globo...

As a resource of brazilian people mind capabilities, we have the "Fala Sonia" Youtube.com video, second her (iuiutubi..). Now you can see whose hands are the future of our country.

Family Guy[edit]

Never seen on Globo.

Is broadcast after Altas Horas, on Saturday. Felipe C.S ( talk ) 20:59, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

240i[edit]

Added this resolution in most regional VHF transmissions. Only great urban centers transmit analog 480i VHF. Sky, Brasilsat transmits 480i digital signal. The ISDB-T 480i but with higher bitrate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.12.18.248 (talk) 14:54, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

After 11:45 to 6:00[edit]

Some programs should be add there, such as Globo Rural and Jornal da Globo. And if someone knows this, please answer, what is on Globo after, Jornal da Globo? -- Vian Brasil 22:26, 28 July 2008 (UTC -3)

You can be bold and add yourself the missing programs. You can find Globo's schedule here. The program after Jornal da Globo, according to the link I provided, is Programa do Jô. Hope that helps. --Carioca (talk) 02:29, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
The article lacks a lot of information. For example the quality standard idealized by Walter Clark, "Padrão Globo de Qualidade" and the fact they pushed the brazilian TV to international standards. Another notable fact they conviced Sony Corporation to develop an exclusive side-by-car camera vt system SPTV. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.78.78.169 (talk) 22:11, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

From the article[edit]

I've removed two related sections from the article because they are poorly written and improperly verified, and that it is not clear whether the content is in fact related to the article. See below. I'm also moving a comment from the top of this talk page to this section, most likely by the editor who put the content in the article. Drmies (talk) 03:52, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

From the talk page:[edit]

Template:Tooholli I am considering an addition for a topic of interest to social scientists. Because of Rede Globo's measurable population penetration over time, researchers have been able to gauge social response to telenovelas (soap operas) in terms of female emancipation, awareness of societal ills like domestic violence, fertility rates and education. There are a number of studies that have found interesting relationships between the availability of these telenovas and a changes in these qualified areas. I feel that these studies are a notable addition and am interested in the community's comments. Thanks! Tooholli (talk) 01:26, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Of Interest to Social Scientists[edit]

The measurable population penetration of Rede Globo’s soap operas, or telenovelas, has aroused attention in the social sciences as a platform from which to examine the impact of soap operas on female empowerment and emancipation [1] (Chong and La Ferrara, 2008). In a demand driven assessment over the course of three decades, researchers found indications that the most popular soap operas are those featuring independent women in positions of power[2]. These soap operas often featured divorced characters- a culturally taboo subject, and illegal[3]until the 1970s- and characters involved in affairs. Researchers have examined the data and discovered links between the availability of these soap operas in rural areas and an increase in divorce, decrease in fertility[4], reduced gender preference for offspring, and an increasing awareness that domestic violence is not universally accepted as a life condition[5]. “Divorce is a salient topic from the point of view of development” (ibid). In fact it has been observed that the possibility of divorce gives women leverage to achieve greater gender equality within marriage, for example, in the distribution of work (ibid).[6] Unilateral divorce laws have also been shown to decrease domestic violence, spousal homicide, and suicide (Stevenson and Wolfers, 2006)[7]. At the same time, divorce may have long-term adverse effects on children (Gruber 2004)[8]. An additional and promising finding was that, “ceteris paribus, Globo coverage has the same effect as an increase of almost 1/2 year in women’s education, in a context where the mean of women’s years of education over the period is 3.2 years.”[9] Other studies[10] on the effects of social messaging in media have shown similar results. Debate on potential policy implications continues, but there remains a theoretically exploitable link between social messaging in television media and the practical advancement of social awareness. See indian soap opera under ‘Further Information’ for indications of this approach at work in India.

Reliable Sources[edit]

Hey everyone, I think we need a better source for this information: Globo is the second-largest commercial TV network in annual revenue worldwide behind just American Broadcasting Company. I was looking for a more reliable source but could not seem to find it, can anyone help me? The current source, from gossip website O Fuxico is simply not reliable. Thanks!!
