Who invented the TV set? I think you should know.

Television (TV) is a telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images that can be monochrome (black and white) or colored, with or without accompanying sound. In 1927, Philo Farnsworth made the world's first working television system with electronic scanning of both the pickup and display devices, which he first demonstrated to the press on 1 September 1928.
    
In 1935 the German firm of Fernseh A.G and the United States firm Farnsworth Television owned by Philo Farnsworth signed an agreement to exchange their television patents and technology to speed development of television transmitters and stations in their respective countries.On 2 November 1936 the BBC began transmitting the world's first public regular high-definition service from the Victorian Alexandra Palace in north London. It therefore claims to be the birthplace of television broadcasting as we know it today.
    In 2012, it was reported that television was growing into a larger component of major media companies' revenues than film.
