The Television

Greatest Invention Of The Industrial Revolution

Television was initially introduced in 1949 but few people owned one at first. It was pretty expensive. There was NBC and CBS for TV channels. TV became increasing popular because it was entertainment without going off to a theatre for movies. As TV became more popular, it also became more affordable. People would hear about this new thing called television through word of mouth, radio and newspaper. Everybody liked the idea of being entertained and still be able to stay at home. By the 1960s most families had a TV set in their living rooms. The turning point came because people like to be entertained at home. Because of the television it may have also made the difference in the JFK vs Nixon election.
