 Television in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are two basic types of television in the United States: broadcast, or "over-the-air" television, which is freely available to anyone with a TV in the broadcast area, and cable television, which requires a subscription to receive.
Rather than sign off for the wee hours of the night (as was standard practice until the 1980's or so), TV stations now fill the time with syndicated programming or 30-minute advertisements, known as infomercials.
Half of all U.S. households had TV sets by 1955, though color was a premium feature for many years (most households able to purchase TV sets could only afford fl-and-white models, and few programs were broadcast in color until the mid-1960's).
