The TV is located at the player's house in the Kesselinperä area. There are two programmes which can be seen on the TV; the Topless Gun action movie and the music video for the song Marjatta (which can also be heard on the in-game radio). These programmes are on the air from 10:00 to 22:00.
Leaving the TV on for extended periods of time can cause a house fire.
The programmes on the television are limited to two "shows": Topless Gun, and a music video for Marjatta. A test pattern is displayed during the late-night hours.
Topless GunEditThe name of the first programme, "Topless Gun", is a reference to the developer's Steam and YouTube name, which is ToplessGun. The show is a parody of both Top Gun and possibly Airwolf. The song Taksi mies by Jörkka Sten, which also plays on the radio, plays in the background of the video.
MarjattaEditThe second programme is a music video for the song Marjatta which can be heard on the in-game radio. The videos will loop after the music video has ended.
Test patternEditFrom 22:00 to 10:00 a test pattern is displayed on the screen, with music playing in the background. Looking directly at at the test pattern increases fatigue, which is helpful for going back to sleep if the player has woken up in the middle of the night.
