WHAT DOES TV MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tv

Television

Television, colloquially known as TV, (from French télévision; from Ancient Greek τῆλε (tèle), meaning "far", and Latin visio, meaning "sight") is a telecommunication medium that is used for transmitting and receiving moving images and sound. In a broader sense, television can also refer to images that are monochrome (black-and-white) or color, or images with or without accompanying sound. Television may also refer specifically to a television set, television program, or television transmission. Commercially available since the late 1920s (but in extremely limited numbers), the television has since become commonplace in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a vehicle for advertising, a source of entertainment, and news. During the 1950s, television became the primary medium for molding public opinion. Then, in the mid-1960s, color television became more widely available.
