A number of media broadcasts

Media were communications that were transmitted through technologies such as audio and video files.

The news, commercials, and entertainment played a large role in mass media, as did, at one time or another, many different types of technologies designed to broadcast such media. Throughout history this included television, radio, cellular phones, the interface, and the internet through live streaming.

By the 2040s, television began to fall out of popularity among the people of Earth. (TNG: "The Neutral Zone") Eventually, holos replaced television for mass media. (PIC: "Remembrance")

In the alternate reality in the 2240s, James Kirk used a Nokia to access an audio media file of a Beastie Boys song called Sabotage. (Star Trek)

In 2367, the Malcorians had entertainment media known as the "daily broadcasts," which were works of fiction that many of the people of Malcor III found interesting. (TNG: "First Contact")

In 2373, when the USS Voyager was sent back to Earth in 1996, Neelix and Kes were monitoring the media broadcasts from Earth at that time. One noteworthy thing they watched was a soap opera. (VOY: "Future's End")

When Craft was stuck in a V'draysh escape pod for a month, he was forced to watch the same media file eight hundred and eleven times, which was a Betty Boop cartoon called Snow-White. (ST: "Calypso")
