RE: Today in History: First television station formed in USA

in #history2 years ago

Television was actually developing quite rapidly. BBC started with regular television program in 1936, and in the same year Berlin Olympics was the first one to be aired on television. By 1939 most major countries (UK, France, Germany, USSR) had their television stations. Development was halted by Second World War with most of these stations ceasing broadcasts (because it was thought that enemy bombers would use television signals for guidance).


That's an interesting add-on to what I have put. I figured that broadcasts would be stopped during WW2 but I didn't know it was for that reason.
