    While those are clever uses for a BROKEN TV, Analog TVs are certainly not dead. As long as your TV still works it only requires an external tuner which cost very little to keep using it.

    Analog TVs most certainly are not dead – any set with an external tuner (which in the UK cost less than £20) is very much alive and kicking.

    Have to agree with previous post in that it’s stories like this that encourage people to dispose of their perfectly good and functional sets when all they need is an external box

    Or… you could just continue to use it so you don’t go buy a new TV and create more waste.
