In the first pilot, Captain Pike had a very ordinary 1960's television in his quarters.

Unless that was something the set designers created, it was probably a real TV. Given that one of the selling points of Star Trek was to help market color TV's, the TV was likely there very deliberately.

Product placement.

Pike's TV was still futuristic for me when I was a kid in the 80s. I mean, just imagine -- a TV which doesn't need tin foil wrapped around the antenna!
