Funny Looking European TV's

This is but one example of a TV from the Continent with a funny looking Outey
picture tube. A lot of European TV's have this, why?

That TV is as old as the hills, get a pic of a TV made anywhere in that era and they'd all have the same look. Dad's Army was a TV show from the early 70s.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Heh.... I remember the scene from European Vacation where a befuddled Rusty is punching the FIVE channel buttons on the TV. The only channel he can get is showing a BBC documentary on cheese. Ahhhh! Good old British TV!  irked

ouch, Zippyjet, ok, we are "Old Europe" (Rumsfeld said) and we are proud of it - on the other hand also we have 21st century and some of our cities already have electricity and telephone.
I am wondering what some people from the "new" world think about the rest of the world.
Also can't understand why you have that big cableless phones I saw 1982 in Dynasty and Denver Clan.  Smile

Either Zippy is trying to pull a leg on us, or he is obsessed with Outey picture tubes, whatever that may be.
And England is of course not "the continent".

That guy actually thinks we have TV's like that over here in this day and age, another example of how Americans can often be so oblivious to the world around them!!!

You know, there really are some very intelligent Americans out there who actually realize that their own country isn't the only one to have; TV's, Digital Television, DSL/Cable Internet, Motorways or should I say Autobahn's seeing as the Germans were the first to have them and not Americans.

An example of a standard European TV..

Obviously Europeans have "outey" picture tube TV's as Mr. Zippy likes to call them, because they're a bunch of socialists, and can't afford anything due to high tax rates. Yeeeeeeeeah, that's it.

European TVs are mainly produced in East Asia. Here is one of the few exceptions...

Don't worry Jfkaua, I still think he was pulling a leg on us, since the title of the websites he linked to ( http://www.eclipse.co.uk/mikey/ ) is unmistakeably called Mikey's VINTAGE technology page.

He Preben, don't forget Loewe. It's not that only you bloody Vikings build nice looking TV sets.  Wink

For heaven sake! I realize those TV's with the outey picture tubes are from back in the day, swinging 60's and the decade from hell known as the 70's. I still don't know why during that time period, those TV's looked like that? Was it design and operation related? I'm 48 years young and, do not know of any TV sets from any decade distributed in the USA that remotely resemble the examples I linked here. (Outey Picture Tubes) Where, did I imply, that Europeans were socialists, backward etc.? I just want to know about the significance of those outey TV tubes. OK? Someone wanted to see what old USA TV's looked like. Well, I'll show you.

I'm the same aga as you I remember seeing pictures of those US tv's in ads in National Geographic. Most of them were bigger than the house we lived in at the time. They probably wouldn't have left room for any other furniture in an average sized European house.

I mean those bits at the side - did the people on screen actually go of into them, like the wings at a theatre?  Smile
