Survey: 9,000 Englishmen still use black and white televisions

Fifty years ago, the BBC broadcasted Wimbledon championship with color for the first time. It was a few week in advance of Germany. It started the the era of color television since then.

When many people guess the black and white television has disappeared in UK, The Daily Telegraph reported a series statistics provided by the charging body of BBC which was impressed. The statistics showed there are still 9,000 families using the black and white televisions, in which London district accounts for most of the users.

Among the statistics, the usage rate of black and white television accounts for the highest in outer Hebrides, Harris and Lewis district which locate in the northwest waters of Scotland. There is still 16% of population using the black and white television.

” The reason for that the usage rate is highest in those regions is the elder people account for a great proportion, said Ian Fordham, the chairman of Travel Industry Association of outer Hebrides.”

The expert analyzed the reasons why there are still users viewing the black and white television. One of the reason is the black and white television costs fewer, about one third of color television’s.

Another reason is that the charging gap of charging bodies in different districts. It might exist the fraudulent conduct in some remote districts.

What’s more, the elder people prefer the black and white television in a conservative concept.

It took ten years that the color television users are more than the black and white television’s. It needs some more time to completely obsolete the black and white television in UK even though its users decrease by 20% each year.
