Tiny Coin-op Television (Mar, 1947)

PAY AS YOU LOOK. Small television receivers will shortly be made available for home use by Tradio Inc., of Asbury Park, N. J., at no initial cost to the subscriber. Payment is made by feeding a coin meter fifty cents for each half hour of operation. The receiver may later be offered on a fixed rental basis, and will also be installed in hotels and, other public places. It is said to be the world’s smallest television set.

    In or near Boston in the early 80s, a pizza(?) place had coin operated TVs at the tables.
