This is only a start[edit]

Being that I'm not an expert on the subject i can't add much to this article. However, since there was no article specifically describing TV sets; I made one. Please add as much as you see fit. Also, to anybody that may want to merge this with Television, that article talks almost entirely about the system as a whole without ever adequately covering the TV set, and covering TV sets in detail within the television article would just add alot of unneeded length. That being said this article could probably be expanded more by detailing the components of a TV set and how they work together, fine-tuning the history section, and adding more graphics.

Multiplier[edit]

In See also section there is a link to the article multiplier. But the target of the link is a disambiguation page. The author must be more specific. (Analog multiplier ?) Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 10:41, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Looking forward?[edit]

The "Looking Forward" section begins with a rather lengthy quote from "Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy." Maybe I'm missing something, but what is the purpose of the quote? I recommend its deletion. Cyberxstrm (talk) 15:28, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Be bold. You're as qualified as anyone else to cut it out. I took it out, it wasn't relevant. This whole article needs to be worked over to get rid of the salesman-talk and essay-ish tone. Everything from "Higher value" on is unreferenced and opinionated. --Wtshymanski (talk) 18:15, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Death of television ?[edit]

Linking with the previous talk section on sales, I note the following BBC web article stating that now children are spending more time online then watching television: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-35399658 Long live televsion sets! ;-) 66.155.23.67 (talk) 17:39, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
