How Big Were Early TV Screens?

Early TV screens were very small.

The first television, the Octagon, made by General Electric in 1928, used a mechanical, rotating disc technology to display images on its three-inch screen.

In the 1920s, General Electric introduced television with a 4-inch screen. By the 1960s, screens had become slightly larger, but were still small, with a 9-inch screen being common.

It wasn’t until the advent of flat-panel LCD, plasma, and OLED technology that TV screens began to grow in size.

Today, TVs with screen sizes of up to 150 inches are available.

Hope it helps!
