Publisher's Summary

History of Television

Television is probably something we nowadays take for granted. There is a TV in almost every home, a TV in almost every public building - basically, where there is a signal, there is a TV.

Found in millions of homes, it is probably difficult to imagine that the first television was created less than a century ago. In such a short time, we managed to go from silent moving images to 3D lifelike images on a flat screen. 

  • How did this groundbreaking technology manage to wiggle its way into almost every living room?
  • What were the first TVs actually like?
  • How did they work?
  • Were they anything like the TVs we have today?

If you are curious to learn the starting point of our favorite entertainment provider, this book is a must-listen. From the early mechanical televisions to the smart TVs and modern devices of today, this book presents a brief, but complete history of the television.

A brief overview

This was a cursory look at the history of television and won't be of much use to anyone with a serious curiosity of the topic.
