CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) technology was the bedrock of television display technology (and computer monitors) for several decades. These days, it's pretty much a dying breed. With the advent of LCD, LED, plasma, and OLED, the writing has been on the wall for CRT over the last decade. Demand for CRT screens has fallen dramatically and it’s been virtually completely overtaken by these latest technologies that also have much lower manufacturing costs, are less bulky and heavy and offer lower power consumption.
Most high-end CRT television production had ended by 2010. Some manufacturers still offer website support for CRT models as in many areas of the third world and developing world, they are still more commonly in use - but markets in the western world and developed countries have all but ended completely.
It's difficult to argue against the considerable advantages that the newer technologies have brought to the television world, of course. The space saving and appealing designs of modern televisions would have been enough to sway most away from CRTs - and the level of features (Freeview, Smart, etc.) really meant that CRT was always going to be fighting a losing battle.
However, whilst interest for CRT TVs is now almost exclusively in the used CRT TV market, some would point towards the advantages that CRT TVs had over its modern counterparts. Although, it was typical for most of us to replace CRT sets every 5 or so years, the truth is - other than the desire to have newer technology and the latest thing - replacement, in the vast majority of cases, probably wasn't really necessary. Used CRT TVs are well capable of satisfactory performance for a considerably longer period of time, in general.
Some experts would argue that CRT, or 'tube' televisions offered the best picture quality as well as impressive sound quality. A second hand CRT TV can provide a high contrast ration and are capable of displaying many resolutions without the need for scaling at all. Used CRT TVs will also give high refresh rates as well as a long life (generally, depending on use, for decades).
