The Introduction of Television
Transcript of The Introduction of Television
IN THE BEGINNING
In July 1956, TCN9 Sydney and HSV7 Melbourne began test transmissions.
Although experimental television transmissions were conducted in Australia as far back as 1929, it was the 1940s before the government of the day considered the full scale introduction of television — and with a World War currently in progress, any further development was put on hold.
Progress after the war was slow, but the upcoming 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games would ensure that TV would arrive in time for the Opening Ceremony.
IN THE BEGINNING
In 1955, the first Australian television licenses were issued in Sydney and Melbourne.
TCN9 Sydney becomes the
first TV station to begin regular
transmission on the 16th of September, 1956.
HSV7 becomes the second TV station to begin regular transmission on the 4th of November 1956.

The introduction of Australian television in the 1950's has influenced and changed the lives of millions of Australians to this current day. The post war technology enabled Australians to absorb entertainment from a different perspective.
Television in the 1950's allowed Australians to be entertained by video and sound. Without the technology back then, television would not be the same today.
