recommendation to add global key facts from International Television Expert Group —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:05, September 22, 2009

The social aspects of the article is too brief[edit]

I think for the most of people, they want to see more information which has relationship with their daily life. While the social aspects of the article is too brief. I suggest that more information about television’s social effects should be explained in the article.

Semi-protected edit request on 18 December 2015[edit]

In the last sentence of the third paragraph of the article, please change "are beaome" to "became". Jsspiegel7 (talk) 02:42, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Blu-ray hype[edit]

The availability of storage media such as VHS tape (1976), DVDs (1997), and high-definition Blu-ray Discs (2006) enabled viewers to watch recorded material such as movies.

Someone please tell me, what precisely did Blu-ray enable, "watching recorded material"-wise, that DVDs didn't? — MaxEnt 04:25, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Internet TV Services[edit]

The end of the 2nd paragraph introduces Smart Television and Internet Television but it confuses the Roku and Chromecast devices with services such as Netflix and Hulu. I'm also not sure iPlayer should be cited as an example given it is not well known, being restricted to the UK. (talk) 22:14, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
