A brief history of television sets
The first practical TV sets were demonstrated and sold to the public at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York.
According to television facts and history on Google, Philo Farnsworth, an American inventor who was a technical prodigy from an early age, developed the first all-electronic television system. However, it’s difficult to determine who actually invented the first TV. Four inventors are given credit – Philo Farnsworth, Kenjiro Takayanagi, John Logie Baird and Charles Francis Jenkins.
John Logie Baird was the first one to transmit the first ever television picture on Oct. 2, 1925, but the first-ever American television mechanical TV station W3XK started working in 1928, and the first broadcast was on July 2, 1928. Television’s first drama, “The Queen’s Messenger” was broadcast from Schenectady, New York station WGY on Sept. 11, 1928. BBC transmission began in 1930.
However, television did not become widely popular until after the end of World War II. The number of television sets in use in America rose from 6,000 in 1946 to some 12 million by 1951. No new invention entered American homes faster than black and white television sets. By 1955 half of all U.S. homes had one. Between 1959 and 1970, the percentage of households in the U.S. with at least one TV went from 88 percent to 96 percent.
By 1953, RCA devised the first complete electronic color TV system, and I remember a few years later when I was in second grade only one “rich family” in my home town owned a color TV set. Besides how much a color TV cost, according to my research, the main reason it took nearly three decades to go from black and white TV sets to color TV sets is because Cinema (movie theaters) retained the monopoly on color moving images and they feared if the public had access to color TV in their homes they would stop going to movies in the theater.
The first TV sets were extremely expensive. The RCA, one of the oldest and well-known brands in consumer electronics, sold a TV set with a 15-inch screen for $1,000, which was the buying power of $7,850 today. Between the 1940s to the 2000s, commercial television had a profound and wide-ranging impact on American society and culture. It influenced the way people think about social issues such as race, gender and class.
From 1961 until the early 1990s, there were only three major networks.
Samsung Electronics is the largest TV manufacturer in the world.
