Philco “Predicta” Television
Many Predictas were produced for the Holiday Inn hotel chain; but the design was considered too radical by everyday consumers, and many sets languished at television dealers. Slow sales, lack of a color model and very poor reliability eventually drove Philco into bankruptcy and sale in 1960. -wiki
Telstar is a company that makes quality reproductions of the Predictas.
Note: According to one of our readers, Telstar Predictas are no longer in production due to demand for HD TVs. Thanks, paperstreetsoapinc
