This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
2 sets of different size 'GiganTek Home Theater Television' add-ons. I set is recolourable and the other set is slaved to the original 'GiganTek Home Theater Television' from Apartment Life. Each set contains 2 portable televisions, 2 floor televisions and 1 wall mounted television. 3 recolours included.
Your Sims won't miss their favorite TV shows with all these beauties.

The Add-On Televisions are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!
The SLAVED Televisions are not base game compatible, Apartment Life is required!

The portable televisions are cloned from the Trottco 27" MultiVid IV Television.
The floor televisions are cloned from the Soma 44" PancakeTek Television.
The wall televisions are cloned from the "Wall-Eye" Large Flat-Panel Television.

Since the standalone add-ons are Base Game, do you mind if I apply Lord Darcy's update kits for FreeTime, and try to run them through jfade's Pets updater?

I needed more TVs for my game, and the Apartment Life TV that came with the game has always been one of my favorites but I’ve found it so hard to use in game because of how it’s built. This is a huge help because now all my sims can use this beauty!

The best TVs I've found so far!
I'm kinda new to the Sims 2 on PC, and these TVs work very well. Thanks!

Thanks for these. My old TV set really needed replacing since they weren't updated to give the 'watch movie' option.

Minor suggestion - perhaps the $2,000 TV should be made 1 tile or height shiftable so that it's placeable on entertainment units? It looks a wee bit small to be a floor TV.

I can't really say this is exactly what I was looking for because it's way better. I was only looking for a smaller TV. For it to match Maxis furniture is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for this!
