When did color TV come out?

Color television was first introduced in the United States in the mid-1950s. In 1953, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the first NTSC (National Television System Committee) color television standard, which enabled the transmission of color television broadcasts. The first color TV sets became available for purchase in the U.S. in 1954, but they were expensive and not widely adopted until the 1960s. The popularity of color television grew rapidly throughout the 1960s and 1970s, and by the 1980s, black and white television sets were largely phased out in favor of color sets. Today, almost all television broadcasts around the world are in color.
