This article highlits one of the debates developed by a group of anthropologists that focus their field research on contemporary migrations in different times and spaces. It reflects on the transversality of the media in different ethnographic fields, which gives rise to the hypothesis that television is an important source of early socialization in the countries of destination, and how immigrants use it as a means of gaining initial knowledge of the local culture. We have been concerned with this topic for some time now, in noting the invisibility of television in the anthropological field work. We ponder on the intense circulation of ideas, representations and symbolic goods that, take place through the individual or collective practice that is involved in watching television, which in turn allows us to consider its presence and interaction with our different research fields.
