The first color TV was RCA´s Model CT-100. This TV became available for purchase in the spring of 1954, after RCA´s and CBS´ fierce battle to get the first color TV approved by the FCC.

RCA produced the first TV to actually work, several German patents were filed in the early 1900's but there design did not actually work. In 1953 the first color TV format was approve by the FCC and RCA started selling their TV's in 1954.

Introduced in 1954, the RCA CT-100 was the first mass-market color television produced in the United States. Although there were earlier mechanical and electronic efforts, none resulted in a viable commercial product. The 1950's-era color sets were extremely expensive (around $6,500 in 2010 dollars) and sold poorly.

John Logie Baird developed the first electromechanical television in 1928 using scanning discs at the transmitting and receiving ends with three spirals of apertures, one for each primary color. RCA developed the first all electronic color TV with no moving parts in 1947. In 1954 RCA started producing color tv's meeting FCC's standards.

RCA did make the first color TV in the early 1950s, but the patent and technology was actually started in the 1920s by Russian inventor, Vladimir Zworykin. The first color broadcast in the US was in December 1953 and consumers were able to buy their first color TVs in 1954.
