My 80s TV is a website that recreates the experience of watching television in the 1980s, from the programming to the way the television set looks.
Those that grew up in the 80s remember a different era of television. There was no Netflix or Hulu, no programming on demand. If you missed the airing of a show, you’d have to wait for it to be replayed on reruns. Your TV was probably small, and it probably had an analog dial. The website My 80s TV seeks to recreate that classic time period of television using the power of new, digital technology. When you go to the page, you’re greeted with one of those old school televisions with knobs instead of buttons. Turn it on and you’ll be greeted with some classic programming from various years of the 80s. You can flip through the channels and even choose which year of the 80s you want to watch content from. You can expect lots of neon and mullets.
My 80s TV has tons of cool features that you wish your TV in the 80s had. You can sort your content by sitcom, drama, soaps, gameshows, talk shows, specials, movies, trailers, kids, toons, music, commercials, news, sports or other. With over 1,000 clips embedded in the 80s tv, the music video is the most popular type of content. 80s music is seemingly eternally popular, though, so this is a great way to get that content. Overall the site makes it extremely fun to flip through channels and discover what’s going to be on the television set. If you’ve ever felt yourself nostalgic for the decade, you’re going to love it.
