Top 20 Television (TV) Brands in India: Which You Can Buy

The top TV brands in India manufacture and sell television sets that vary in features and functionality. Since the introduction of TV sets to consumers after World War II, we have seen a huge development in their making and, of course, their functionality and ease of use as well. Television is one of those inventions that has had a significant effect on individuals and society as a whole.

From Black & White CRT Screens to Today’s Smart IP TVs in India

In India, televisions were brought to households during the 1960s, and by the 1970s, people who could afford the product had them in their homes. At that time, there were CRT (cathode ray tube) TVs with black and white display screen. Then came coloured CRT TVs in the Indian market. Earlier, the TVs used to be connected to an aluminium antenna (hung outside the house) via a cable that enabled the transmission of broadcast services. Many of you will also remember the times when one had to physically adjust the antenna to receive signal (frequency) properly (which was very annoying). These days, most of us do a similar thing for acquiring internet connectivity (Wi-Fi and 3G/4G/LTE mobile data) frequency.

During those days and until the 90s, purchasing a television set in India was quite uncommon, since only a few could have them. However, the beginning of the 21st century changed a lot of things. CRT TVs were replaced with flat panel LCD, LED, OLED, and today’s new generation Smart TVs or IP (Internet Protocol) TVs that let you watch your favourite shows via the internet on subscription-based OTT (over-the-top) platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, JioCinema, Hulu, Disney+ Hotstar, Voot, and more. Today, we are offered a vast range of television sets, and the companies that manufacture and market the product are also overwhelmingly many.
