Minecraft mods add all sorts of cool technology into the game. However, until now, we haven’t seen any televisions. That changes with the TV Mod for Minecraft 1.7.4/1.7.2/1.6.4. Now, players can craft a flat screen TV and a remote control. Then, they can sit back and watch their favorite videos inside the Minecraft world.
The TV Mod is very simple to use. TVs and remotes can be crafted with just a few basic materials (the recipes can be found in the mod’s official forum thread). After crafting a TV, players can place it on any wall just like a painting. After placing the TV (and following the video installation guide at the bottom of this page), players can watch any video in the Minecraft world.
If you want to stop, pause, or play the video in the TV Mod, then you need a remote control. Pressing right-click while holding the remote control will stop or play your video, while pressing shift and right-click at the same time will switch to the next video or turn your TV off (depending on whether the video is playing or stopped).
The TV Mod is a fun and intuitive mod that makes any Minecraft home look way more technologically advanced that before. However, it can be a bit resource intensive, and framerates might drop when you turn on your TV. Since the TV broadcasts actual video into the Minecraft world, it puts a heavy strain on your computer’s resources.
However, if you’re ready to combine Minecraft and TV together, then the TV Mod can certainly do that. Download it today to try it out.
