My gosh at the calories we burned as kids getting up to change the channel for our parents over and over again...lol
yes and we used pliers when the button broke. whos got the pliers?
Yes, we had the "tv pliers" too ! ;D
Me too. Lol!
Sure did and even remember having black and white TV and rabbit ears.
yes and i also adjusted the tv antenna with rabbit ears and sometimes even stood in certain positions to lesson the amount of snow.
Yeah I remember that lol
Yes, for all four channels.
Yes, and when I stayed up late, all the channels went off the air. No 24/7 television back then.
I never really understood what that "test pattern" was supposed to be testing...
Black and white at that baby, with rabbit ears. I'm one old ****.
I remember when I got cable, the cable box had a 60 channel dial on it.
No, I mean, my cable box had a dial, not buttons.
Yep, & back then we only had three channels !
Yes, to play the Nintendo at my grandparents' house :D
As Awchie ( the way Edith Bunker pronounced it) & Edith used to say ..."THOOOOZE were the DAAAAYYZ " ..LOL
Believe it or not I still do! I don't watch much telly and my set is an old black and white with a dial to change the channel.
I still do because I can't find my remote or because it isn't working :)
yup, black & white tv, rabbit ears
Oh yeah. Both the VHF and UHF dials. Channel 17 was our local ABC affiliate. Btw I watched the first Saturday Night Live too but did not realize it was new at the time because we had just gotten cable installed. LOL. Ah youth......
i have turned a dial ... i have to admit, that i have even used a matchbook to get a clear reception, and a coat hanger to get the reception of the station .... if i told you i have been to homes with Straight Telephone Cords, how old would think i am? :-)
No point, there was only BBC 1.
Yes,for many years - I turned my first dial,I would guess, back in 1957.
Yes. I know people who still have a tv that has a dial and only gets five channels.
