IconHelp tv.png

TVs are Props featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png that were added with Patch 5.6.0 alongside The Onryō IconHelpLoading onryo.png.
They only spawn in Trials against her.

TVs will begin turned off, but will turn on 30 seconds into the Trial.

While Demanifested, The Onryō can Project herself to any turned on TV in the map, which will turn it off for 100 seconds.

Survivors can also turn off TVs by retrieving the VHS Tape FulliconItems vhsTape.png from them, or turning them off while already holding a VHS Tape. These actions come at the cost of that Survivor gaining some Condemned progress.
