Politically Correct TV Standards


Used by France and the former Soviet union.

No tint control. No color control.

Full socialism. The state knows exactly what color you should see and how strong that color should be.


Used by Germany & UK, Australia etc.

No tint control. A color control.

Partial socialism. The state knows exactly what color you should see but you get a choice as to how strong it can be.


Used in USA and Canada, Japan etc.

A tint control, A color control.

Uncontroled socialism. The state lets you chose what color you see and how strong it can be. They then tax you regardless.
