'" W f COVE if T H E M j D 1'JS"b'u Tiri"' by Felix Carney Here's a note about color television. The networks are now studying their programs carefully to decide which shows are going on in color when it comes. They have to choose carefully, for color TV will be limited in the beginning. Only a few programs will use color, and in communities with more than one TV station it's probable that only one station will be set up for color. RCA-NBC Board Chairman declares that there is "no economic future in cashbox TV," but he does predict that an electronic audience voting system is near at hand, which could be used for public opinion polls and perhaps even for elections, with the TV set owner pushing a button on his set to register "Yes" or "No." But the proponents of "cashbox" TV, whereby you could get special programs, such as first run movies or sports events, pnly by paying a fee, feel they have a great future. One manufacturer has already been submitted to the FCC for approval, and another system, called Skia- tron, will put in a bid for approval this fall, along- with Subscriber-Vision and maybe a few others. How the TV audience will react is still a question ... To keep your TV evenings full of maximum enjoyment, call on our factory trained technicians for service when you need it.
