The electronic delivery of moving TV images appeared for the first time in 1878. It happened after the telephone was invented. In 1884, a young student, Paul Gottlieb Nipkow, patented the first electromechanical television system that used a scanning disc. However, this invention wasn’t used for a long time. The electromechanical TV system was applied after the invention of tube amplifiers.

Television became available even before the Second World War, but it was more of an experiment. After the war, black-and-white TV broadcasting was improved and gained popularity in the USA and later in Great Britain.
