Michael, Franklin and Dave Norton about to watch the news following The Jewel Store Job.

In Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, television has been extensively changed from its appearance in GTA IV. There are many new features, particularly in online. 

Description

GTA V

In single player, TV stays practically the same as it was in Grand Theft Auto IV. It doesn't affect the gameplay in any way, and its only function is being a pastime. The number of viewable TV shows has been expanded and now the player can watch television even if he is not siting in one place. The player must be seated to control the television however.

Sometimes, when the player switches to another character, he can be found watching television in his house.

Television production makes an appearance in the game in the mission Fame or Shame when behind the scenes access to the Fame or Shame reality TV series is available. Television news reports are also used to aid plot development in a number of other missions.

Lester Crest has CCTV installed at his house but no interaction is possible.

Trivia

  • In GTA V, "live action" TV shows and commercials, as well as movies, all appear to have been created by Rockstar Games in either the GTA V map, or on previous Rockstar Games titles (such as GTA San Andreas, L.A.Noire, GTA IV or Red Dead Redemption) as opposed to how some forms of media in GTA IV were filmed/created on "test maps" (The Men's Room, Venturas Poker Challenge, etc).
  • A new episode of Princess Robot Bubblegum was cut from the final game, however, it returned in the enhanced version of the game.
  • If the player activates Michael's special ability when the tv is on, the images on the TV will not be affected by the slow motion.
