It may come as some surprise to the younger generations, but the world was once in black and white. Well, not literally- but for those who owned the first models of TV it was. Some have argued that the color TV was the biggest advancement in home entertainment since the TV was first introduced, but there have been much bigger advancements over the years.
Did you know that color TV had been in development since 1897? While the technology was improving, the electronics of the time were just not advanced enough to operate. It was not until 1928 that a color broadcast was finally achieved. The first national color TV broadcast was in 1954- and the official transition to color took place in 1965. Back then, the technology was not as easy to update as the digital TV transition since consumers had to buy new TVs- but eventually black and white became a thing of the past.
Today, we have so many new kinds of TV that many consumers don’t know where to start. Most recently, 4K TV’s have been hitting the shelves here at Best Buy. Like the color TV, this marks the start of a new era of TV broadcasting. With TVs like the Samsung 4K Ultra HD or the LED Curved models, the picture is twice as clear at a 2160p resolution.
