A cathode ray tube display for showing moving pictures with sound. Even on the rimworlds, there is often an old transmitter running something at least marginally interesting.
A tube television is a television that can be built by colonists with a construction skill of 7 or higher. Effective in a 3x5 area in front of the object, spaced 1 tile away from it.
