    Telebank now that is a blast from the past. I remember a friend from school whose parents had a Telebank TV back in the early 90s, a pound would last 2 hours. Telebank would put ads on the local papers i think until 2001.

    I thought that renting televisions disappeared at some point in the 1990s when the cost of sets went down, or were consolidated at least.

    I believe that Granada (the TV rental arm, not the ITV company) became part of Box Clever in the 1990s.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    In the end most of the rental companies seemed to merge together.
