10 cents per 10 minutes Pay per View

One of the first and the only one I have seen. Pay per view B/W television Its a http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/sony_tr...iver_tv_3.html
Table top vending machine that still works good. I have hooked it up to cable and the picture is still good. I am sure it could use a cleaning with Deoxit and Faderlube. This is not my forte as I like vintage sound. Drop in a dime and your good for 10 minutes. "Adjustable". This would cost at 24 lbs $90.00 to well pack and ship to the USA. I am willing to trade for vintage audio/S/W radio open to offers. What have you got?

Pretty cool. I could see this in a 70's airport.

I remember seeing little tv's like that in airports too..... I wanna say it was late 70's
possibly early 80's..... I don't recall it catching on much, so I would say he's
got a somewhat rare little thingie....

Oh I did not think like that. The reason I mentioned it is because dealing with someone that has only 1 post "in classifieds on top of that" I would be a little reluctant to trust for a transaction.

The bus station in Kansas City, MO used to have these!

I used to see those rent-a-TVs in various airports, but I can't recall anyone actually watching one. Usually, the TV seats would be empty, or if the area was crowded, people would use the chair to read a magazine or whatever.

I remember the ones that the chair was connected but this is a table top version. But in an airport makes sense because security is 24/7 .I have also seen them in the greyhound bus stations but it wasn't a table top version. The TV was connected to the chair.

Gyrocomp 06-21-2014 04:06 PM

I put in a dime and the nostalgia kick's in. Going back in time. Like we all do.I ITs a step back in time that's enjoyable that you cant find anywhere else.
And you know in 10 minutes you have to put another dime in. Too Cool

If you have kids and want to limit their video game time, make this the only set available. You can't play video games without a functioning TV set...

Yeah, bus station in Calgary had them in 87 I flew back from Europe to Calgary and had a lonnng wait before bus to where I needed to go.. A NHL playoff game started and I started plugging quarters in, Caps vs Islanders, it went to quadruple overtime before Lafontaine scored the winner and bankrupted me in the process!!!!

Are you positive? I've never seen a "table-top" version, AFAIK all of these were meant to be mounted on different forms of chairs in bus and air terminals. Table-top makes no sense to me at all. In what kind of situation would that be used?
