The Evolution of the Television looks at the last 84 years of TV’s history. Brought to us from the Sterling Satellite blog.
Did you know it took 13 years for television to reach 50 million users? TV has evolved from the time it started with just a few programs airing each day into 24/7 news and hundreds of stations to choose from.
People didn’t immediately embrace the new technology though. 10 years after its debut in 1936, the head of 20th Century Fox Darryl F. Zanuck (seeing TV as a competitor to movies) famous last words were predicting it would not catch on. He said he thought “People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night.”
But they have not.
