Definition from Termcat:
Activitat que, per mitjà de les tecnologies de la societat de la informació, pretén oferir informació i entreteniment a la vegada.

Example sentence(s):
  • Un dels treballs que es podran veure al Miniput és un documental d'entreteniment noruec titulat Can't get out of my head i que TV3 ha adquirit per adaptar-lo. El programa és una de les novetats que renova el format d'entreteniment informatiu. - El Punt  
  • ...des del CIPB hem d'intentar alertar, sensibilitzar, preocupar-nos perquè no es perdin els objectius de la professió i que aquesta es converteixi en una altra cosa, sobretot en el cas de la televisió, on no estem fent informació sinó entreteniment informatiu. - Capçalera (anar a la pàg. 41)  
  • En qualsevol cas, a mi no em cal desintonitzar Telecinco perquè no la miro gaire: la seva programació m’interessa més aviat poc. No m’interessa l’entreteniment informatiu servit en forma de telenotícies o Está pasando o productes per l’estil, ni les desventures de Fernando Alonso, ni les pel·lícules interrompudes a cinc minuts del final per una falca publicitària extemporània, ni Los Serrano, ni Cámara café, ni Dutifri, ni Patricia Gaztañaga ni Belén Esteban ni Ana Rosa Quintana ni tutti quanti. - Gonzalez Castro
