The television is available in players' farmhouse when beginning the game. There are a variety of channels with content that changes daily.
Players on the standard map start with a Budget TV, and players on non-standard maps start with a Floor TV. Players can later purchase a Plasma TV (an upgraded television set with a bigger screen) from Robin's carpenter shop.

The weather report tells the player what the weather will be like the next day. It's especially useful when turning in the watering can for upgrades, because it allows the player to plan in advance for when it will rain and they won't need to water their crops.
After using a Rain Totem, the weather report will update their forecast.

"The Queen of Sauce" is a television channel which teaches the player cooking recipes. Beginning on Spring 7, a new recipe airs each Sunday for the first 2 years of the game. On Wednesday, a random recipe that has previously aired on a Sunday airs as a "Re-run". Simply watching the channel will teach the player the recipe if it's not yet known. The rotation of Sunday recipes repeats on a 2-year schedule.
