DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the first mass-produced TV set was introduced in 1946? Following World War II, the RCA 630-TS came into the consciousness of people. This television functioned with valve tube technology. Soon after, the "TV" as we know, has evolved from box sets to tubes, to flat-screens and now, to mobile devices. Its hardware has been in constant change but its purpose remains the same. It is unimaginable for a household in modern society not having a TV set at home. Watching TV is America’s favorite pastime. For the years 2013–2017, U.S. civilians ages 15 and older spent an average of 2 hours 46 minutes per day watching TV. This was according to data from the American Time Use Survey (ATUS).
Today, we are witnessing radical changes on TV programming. The traditional sense of television viewing is dying. There are apps that have literally redefined what a traditional channel is. In this era, you can not only watch shows but can also stream live news, play video games and so much more in a cheaper way. A few decades back, it would have been unimaginable to not have a TV set or a computer to finish your favorite series. However, streaming devices lead the way nowadays. The essence of entertainment seems to be coming and going by quickly. The best online streaming apps are available to get you entertained even away from home. This is inevitable and we shouldn't be surprised if there are more surprises that technology holds for us viewers.
