Television is a telecommunication medium which, after almost a century of development, was commercialized around the 1930's. The first countries to benefit from the new telecommunication medium were the United-States, the United-Kingdom, France, Russia, Germany, Italy, and Japan. In some African and Asian countries, however, television was commercialized only from the 1990's.
There has been a huge development in the television area. Hundreds of channels are now broadcasting TV series, movies, news, and many other kinds of programs. Television also largely contributed to the development of commercials, and little by little, replaced radio sets.
