Early Television Set

First televised basketball games occurred in 1940. The games took place in Madison Square Garden and showcased four college teams, Fordham University versus University of Pittsburgh, and Georgetown versus NYU.

Color television sets were offered for sale in 1954. However, most broadcasting was in black and white, so the sets did not really sell until about 1965 when broadcasting was in color.
