* The ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' series usually has a TV you can watch. In some cases, it's something like the TV equivalent of a PamphletShelf--the "shows" are short and silly. In others, they're still short, but they form a complete story--for example, ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonFriendsOfMineralTown'' has "My Fair Princess", a fairy-tale show about a princess and a Demon Lord, which actually has its own little story arc. (In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS'', you can actually get the full show on DVD and "watch" all the episodes.)

* ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' and ''Platinum'' editions actually let you watch TV and learn about an outbreak of Pokémon appearing and the news tells you where the Pokémon have appeared, giving you an opportunity to snag some rare ones.
** The TV also plays some documentaries related to basic game mechanics, as well as shows about your exploits. It's possible to screw with them by talking to the TV station crew and giving nonsense answers to the interview. (Well...more nonsense than usual. I like "Chlorophyll".)

** Even better, by activating the noclip cheat, you can actually ''get into'' the newscaster's studio, just to see how many corners were cut to actually make his appearance on the screen look fairly realistic. Also, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything there was a money clip on the floor of the studio with a few hundred bucks in it]], just for the folk that decided to visit.
