Once again NBC uses a big event to help push sales and interest in the latest TVs. That's been their tradition since 1955 when they introduced color TV by airing the Rose Parade in color. People would drop in on their friends on New Year's Day, see the parade (and later the game) in color on their friend's TV and decide to buy one. That program probably convinced more people to buy a color TV than other.
