Late 1960's

Probably the best-selling Brazilian TV of the late 60's:

Pelé, the "King of Soccer"

Pelé, the "King of Soccer" promoting the 1971 line of Colorado TV sets ( all B&W ). I have the smaller TV seen on this photo.

No, it is probably just some kind of reference to the Colorado river or the Colorado state in the United States.

Philco referred to the tuner in their '52 model sets as the " Colorado tuner".
Maybe it was hard to get good reception in Colorado.
Of course the sets were all B/W.

Maybe they were DXing Denver from Philly....There were weirder TV DX stories in the 50's like getting BBC here in the states without an antenna.

The first Colorado tv station went on the air in 1952 (KFEL ch 2), wonder if they outsold other brands in a tv starved state by using this designation?

This site has a post claiming that the Colorado tuner was named after the designer's home state:

I was just thinking about that story the other day, and finally decided it's BS. They were using a 405-line system at the time, and no amount of fine-tuning is going to make an NTSC receiver sync up that picture.

It possibly was a BBC sourced program from a station from southeast Canada.
The BBC transmitters were rather weak and only intended to cover various sections of the UK.

There are well confirmed reports (including off screen photos) of BBC 405 line TV being received in the US on occasion. Including before WW2. Channel B1 (45MHz vision, 41.5MHz sound) can go a long way if the propagation condtions are right.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/405-li...evision_system

"It soon became apparent that television reception was also possible well outside the original intended service area. In February 1938, engineers at the RCA Research Station, Riverhead, Long Island, New York, in the USA, were able to receive the BBC signal 5,000 km (3,100 mi) away, due to the signal being "bounced" back to earth from the ionosphere. A few minutes of programming were recorded on 16mm movie film. This is now considered to be the only surviving example of pre-war, live British television.[2] The images recorded included two of the original three BBC announcers, Jasmine Bligh and (in a brief shot) Elizabeth Cowell, an excerpt from an unknown period costume drama, and the BBC's station identification transmitted at the beginning and end of the day's programmes.
