''All about the medium of television, its sub-categories, and TV-specific tropes that cross those divisions.''

Television "TV" is traditionally viewed on a television set, after the early 2000's people can catch up on their favorite programs via computer and mobile devices. Commercially available since [[TheRoaringTwenties the 1920s]] (though television as we know it today dates from 1936, as the result of the invention of a key component by Vladimir Zworykin of RCA and Philo T. Farnsworth)[[note]]Both the first experimental {{videophone}} service, and the world's oldest TV channel (BBC One), started in this year[[/note]], but only really catching on in [[TheFifties the 1950s]]. Home televisions were black & white, analog, heavy, and at 4:3 aspect-ratio; gained color in the 60s; and after the TurnOfTheMillennium became digital, lighter, and wider with a 16:9 aspect-ratio.

Television is what the TV in our name stands for[[note]]but we're not just about TV[[/note]]. But you probably already knew that.
