1973: Elvis Presley's concert "Aloha from Hawaii" is broadcast live via satellite, and sets a record as the most watched broadcast by an individual entertainer in television history. The show, however, was not seen live everywhere in the world. Most of Europe and Asia received the concert the next day, also in prime time, and the United States did not air the concert until April 4, 1973, because it took place the same day as Super Bowl VII.
