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.
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.
The Television was originally referred to as the "Big TV Screen." It was updated to its current name and given its current functionality on 23 June 2021.  Prior to this update, which changed several Electronics items, the Television had no use.
