Celebrate Color TV Day on June 25th and join the millions of people who have enjoyed the wonders of color television since it was first invented! On this day, we recognize the invention of color television and its impact on society. The first successful experiments with color TV were conducted in 1928 by Scottish inventor John Logie Baird, but it wasn't until 1953 that commercial broadcasts began in America. From then on, watching movies and shows has never been more vivid or entertaining!
