Back then, the box-shaped appliances showed black and white to sepia shows with minimum to no audio capabilities. Fast forward to many years later, and the TV is now one of the primary forms of entertainment each family has on their household. Flat screens have long since replaced most of their analog counterparts, boasting impressive and high quality specs with much cheaper prices. And of course, with the evolution of what the gadget can do for us now, also come with the changes of how we buy and watch our TVs today.
