==Features==

In single player, TV stays practically the same as it was in [[GTA IV]], but in multiplayer, there are many new things. If a player gets invited to another players apartment, the player owning the apartment can tune into CCTV on their television in their room to see who is at the door. Also, since [[Police Maverick]]s now have cameras on the front, if another player has a high wanted rating and is being chased by the [[Los Santos Police Department (GTA5)|police]], the player in their apartment can watch the police chase in-game live by tuning in to [[Weazel News]]. However, this system seems to randomly choose a player, since many players may have a wanted rating too.
