However, the reason behind the Color TV Day must be to celebrate the best entertainment instrument of the all generation, that is colour television. TV first came into the market during the late 19th century, but during that time electronics were less advanced and there were only a few televisions. Only in 1935, the regular broadcasts of black and white shows were telecast and by 1950 around six million televisions were sold in the United States alone. A commercial was broadcast with the variety of show featuring Ed Sullivan which is considered to be the changing step of everything. The major transition took place during 1965 when an announcement was made that more than half of prime-time broadcasting to be done in colour. By 1980, the majority of televisions were transformed to the colour TV. Around 2006, countries began to switch from analogue colour television technology to digital television.
