Television

Television sets are twentieth-century collectibles. Although the first television transmission took place in England in 1925, collectors find few sets that pre-date 1946. The first sets had only five channels, but by 1949 the additional UHF channels were included. Cable television was introduced in the 1940s and the first TV remote controller appeared in 1956. The first color television set became available in 1951.
