First TV I ever saw was the size of a refrigerator and had about a 9" round tube. That was several years before my family got a TV. There were one or two channels on the air at that time, for a few hours each day.

Why does DIRECTV hate news channels? First, it was All News Channel and now this!!! It's probably to make room for that college sports espn channel I am hearing rumors about.

You're a young pup. We had a Commodore VIC 20 with a 300 Baud Modem and a cassette tape drive. Also had a TRS80.

Now that was old school
