When did the first color TV come out?

Answer

The first color TV went on sale in the summer of 1950. The first color broadcast for this television, however, was not until June of 1951.

It took a few additional years after their initial release for color TVs to become a mainstream product. The FCC approved RCA color televisions toward the end of 1953, marking the start of major color TV sales in the United States. Sales of color televisions slowly overtook those of black-and-white sets. By the mid-1970s, more color televisions were being purchased than black-and-white TVs. By the 1980s, black-and-white television sales began to dry up for good.
