The first fully modern color TV was announced in 1944, but color TV sets did not go on sale in the US until 1953.
Color television has a long history reaching back to 1928. It's roots go back just a little further still.

In 1925 John Logie Baird demonstrated the first working television system in London England. It used a spinning disc with holes in it to produce a moving image. This was the system used by the BBC for its first public television broadcasts in 1929. It was also the basis for Baird's demonstration of color television in 1928. By combining three discs with colored light sources and mirrors, Baird demonstrated the principles of using red, green and blue light to generate a full color image. The resulting product was cumbersome, poor resolution and probably noisy. But it did work and the principle of breaking down an image into three colors has remained in place until today. By the time Baird had a working color system, the BBC had committed to using the monochrome version and electronic versions replaced his electro-mechanical systems in the 1930s.

In the early 1952, color was introduced as a commercial service in the US. Technically, it was a success but commercially, it was a flop. The color televisions could not show the existing monochrome transmissions so take up was poor and the whole service was withdrawn after only a few months.

In 1954, RCA began their color service using an agreed signal standard known as NTSC. The standard was compatible with monochrome services already established. Unlike the previous attempt, this launch captured the imagination of the public and the following years saw an explosion of color television across the country.

Other countries followed suit and by the end of the 1960s, most countries has color television.

The color signal standards set out back in the 1950s have remained largely unchanged and are still in use today, more than half a century on.

The first color television was demonstrated in 1928 by John Logie Baird. This Scottish inventor demonstrated the world's first operating monochrome television, called a Televisor in March of 1925. The color version used three signals to carry and repreduce red, green and blue lighting to build a full color image. The system was electro-mechanical with a rotating disc required for each of the three colors and so it was cumbersome by modern standards. Nonetheless, the demonstration showed that full color television could be realised by mixing the three primary colors and it is still this principle that is in use today for color television.

From that time onwards, color television was developed to the point that the 1950s saw the first commercial broadcasts in the US. The first attempt was in 1952 by CBS. Although it was a technical success, it was a commercial failure and was withdrawn after only a few months. Two years later, RCA began color broadcasting and this time, it was a commercial success.
