Sell Price

Television is an Electronic item that can be acquired through larceny. It can be sold to (but not purchased at) the Super Store.

The Television was one of the items available at the official launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.


The Television can be obtained through the "Mansion" larceny crime, but only when a player's Crime Experience is lower. It can also be found through city finds.


Watching a Television converts energy to happiness. There is no usage cooldown and there are three different options for how much energy is to be used. With a 10 energy option, The Television has the highest energy option compared to any item with the same effect, such as the MP3 Player or Game Console.

MP3 Player Usage
Action Energy Used Happiness Gained
Watch a Cartoon 3 Energy 42-63 Happiness
Watch a Show 5 Energy 80-120 Happiness
Watch a Movie 10 Energy 160-240 Happiness

The Television is an option to spend extra energy that is divisible by three that would otherwise be unused. These bits of energy can be obtained from a faction energy drink perk in the Voracity branch, use of Book : Higher Daddy, Higher!, or from using the one or three energy options on an MP3 Player, CD Player, Television, or Game Console.
