A television is an interactible piece of furniture, with three different variants: antique television, Premium Technologies television and ValuTech television.

Usage

Televisions must be connected to a power source, either via the electrical grid or a generator.

The UI

The UI for the television can be accessed by either LMC on the television in the world, or choosing "Device options" in the contextual menu, upon which a window will be displayed.

The Television window as displayed in-game. Explanation of numbers are to the right.
Below is a description explaining each component of the television window; numbers correspond to those displayed in the image.
  1. The device name.
  2. Current channel TV is tuned in to.
  3. Button to turn TV on/off.
  4. Indicator identifying whether it's connected to a power source.
  5. Volume level: increasing or decreasing will affect noise.
  6. Drop-down box displaying all available channels. Current channel is displayed.
  7. Tune in button: channel will not change until it's pressed.

Skill building

Televisions can be used to improve the player's skills. To do this, the player must be in the same room as the television whilst it is set to Life and Living TV (channel 203). When a skill building show is running, the player will passively gain experience in the show/episode's dedicated skill.

SPOILER WARNING!
This section is likely to contain major spoilers pertaining to the story of Project Zomboid.

Televisions (along with radios) are currently the only way to learn more about the lore behind Project Zomboid. There are several individuals from Triple-N, WBLN and TURBO, each with their own views on the events unfolding within the Exclusion Zone. All reporters are situated outside the zone, causing their reports to rely solely on rumours and government officials; until images, stories and even survivors begin to find their way beyond the exclusion border (along with the infected).
