    Re: Preposition

    "On tv" is correct, not "in tv". Note that we usually use "the news" rather than just "news".

    With my corrections, sentence 2 is correct. The programme we watch is called, as has been pointed out, "the news". "in TV" is not used.

    Well done for correctly using capital letters for "TV". Many learners use "tv", which is not how it's written.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
