Buy TV Static MP3: https://goo.gl/B0FlrQ
Remember that nice feeling of falling asleep to the sound of static on TV? Digital TVs often go to black or otherwise eliminate the static, so here is some analog white noise goodness. By the way, for you purists out there, this is true white noise. Many of my other videos are white noise variations, but this is the real deal :)
Use this sound for sleeping, studying, masking tinnitus and blocking out distracting noises. It is also great for soothing a colicky infant or putting your baby to sleep.
In fun trivia, the Indonesian word for white noise translates to "war of the ants." The Hungarian word for white noise translates to "ant soccer". Here's the rest of the Wikipedia entry that mentions those tidbits:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Noise, in analog video and television, is a random dot pixel pattern of static displayed when no transmission signal is obtained by the antenna receiver of television sets and other display devices. The random pattern superimposed on the picture, visible as a random flicker of "dots" or "snow", is the result of electronic noise and radiated electromagnetic noise accidentally picked up by the antenna. This effect is most commonly seen with analog TV sets or blank VHS tapes.
There are many sources of electromagnetic noise which cause the characteristic display patterns of static. Atmospheric sources of noise are the most ubiquitous, and include electromagnetic signals prompted by cosmic microwave background radiation, or more localized radio wave noise from nearby electronic devices.
The display device itself is also a source of noise, due in part to thermal noise produced by the inner electronics. Most of this noise comes from the first transistor the antenna is attached to.
Due to the algorithmic functioning of a digital television set's electronic circuitry and the inherent quantization of its screen, the "snow" seen on digital TV is less random.
UK viewers used to see "snow" on black after sign-off, instead of "bugs" on white, a purely technical artifact due to old 405-line British receivers using positive rather than the negative video modulation used in Canada, the U.S., and (currently) the UK as well.
Most modern televisions automatically change to a blue screen or turn to standby after some time if static is present. Since one impression of the "snow" is of fast-flickering black bugs on a white background, in Sweden, Denmark and Hungary the phenomenon is often called myrornas krig in Swedish, myrekrig in Danish, hangyák háborúja in Hungarian, and semut bertengkar in Indonesian, which translate to "war of the ants" or sometimes hangyafoci in Hungarian which means "ant soccer", and in Romanian, purici, which translates into "fleas".
