The United States of America rightfully ranks first in the world in the development of television and radio broadcasting. However, not many people know that the Russian emigrant V. K. Zworykin was the founder of American TV. It was thanks to his hard work and intelligence that television channels appeared in many homes of US citizens. Read the article about how television developed, as well as about the largest US TV channels.
How it all began
And although the trial work of TV channels began already in the early 1930s, terrestrial television received full development after the Second World War. Since 1945, rapid work began on television channels. Televisions in the United States were no longer considered a curiosity and were at least not in every home, but not in single copies either. With each post-war year, the number of television channels in the United States has only increased. Therefore, by 1949, the number of TV programs in America reached 45. And this despite the fact that about 340 more TV channels were waiting for consideration in order to start their work. This wassuccess!
It was during the first years of American TV broadcasting that the first major US TV channels were opened, which are still considered the leaders of television. These include: ABC, NBC, CBS. These giants have been working and developing for the citizens of America for more than half a century.
The first advertisement was an advertisement for Bulova watches. It happened in the summer of 1941, during the broadcast of sports competitions. This video has survived to this day.
After the first release of the advertisement, it began to appear more and more often, becoming an integral part of American TV. Since the 1950s, color television has gradually developed. By 1970, every family had at least one television set.
And in addition to the three leading US TV channels, one more was added - PBS. TV viewers can already choose what they want to watch: educational program, news, series or feature film.
Main TV channels and their broadcast schedule
As already mentioned, the most popular US TV channels took their leading positions back in the distant 40s. What are the American TV giants talking about?
NBC TV channel broadcasts throughout the United States. And also partially works in Mexico and Canada. It is considered the main TV channel of the country. The main direction is news. Over the long time of its existence, several people have changed at the post of NBC management. It was this channel that first showed the most popular at that time series "SantaBarbara".
Science and entertainment channel ABC began its work in the 40s and has not lost ground since then. During the work, a lot of entertainment programs and interesting series have been aired. The most popular series of all time was the series "Lost", which found delight among the American audience.
CBS is positioning itself as a news channel. And it focuses on this broadcast format.
FOX is another legendary TV channel. Having taken his place in a number of entertainment TV channels, he managed to achieve tremendous success and surpass most of them. The channel gained particular popularity thanks to the broadcasts of such cult series as The Simpsons and House M. D.
Satellite channels of America
In addition to the broadcast, there are also US satellite TV channels. They are usually focused on a narrow audience with its personal needs. Satellite TV includes:
- CNN (news),
- MTV (Music Entertainment Channel),
- Animal Planet,
- HBO (feature films and series) and others.
However, for these TV channels, American viewers already had to pay a monthly fee, receiving quality content in return.
American TV channels today
Since then, times have changed a lot, and the TV, although not completely, has faded into the background, giving way to computers and laptops with the Internet. Today, you can watch American television from anywhere in the world by pressing just a couple of buttons on your gadget. However, not everyone understands the English language, which is broadcast.
But today you can watch foreign news from US TV channels in Russian. These channels include: Euronews, TV 503, Verizon Fios (partly). The remaining channels broadcast exclusively in English and other foreign languages. In general, these TV channels were created for Russian emigrants in the United States who have not yet fully mastered the language or simply want to hear their native language on TV. You can find TV channels in English and Russian on websites that specialize in showing online broadcasts from around the world.
