Here is a shot of your bloggist checking out a Philco Predicta TV at a motel somewhere in New Hampshire. The Predicta was unusual since the guts were mounted within the countertop and only the protruding CRT, which swiveled, was exposed. Hotel rooms were sometimes equipped with these with the idea of preventing TV thieves from making off with Zenith and Magnavox consoles inside the bed linens.
Things haven't changed that much. Now they give you a TV worth about $16 and charge $9.95 for wifi.
