A Billboard-Sized Error

For the hundredth time, I would like to remind people that adding an apostrophe to a word or abbreviation does not make it plural.

The text of this billboard in Porter Square is in all caps, so it would be difficult to differentiate TVs from TVS (Turkish vacuuming system?), but I'm sure they could have figured something out.

It is like that in the commercials, too! It drives me mad!

I thought that the apostrophe was correct because it wasn't plural but ownership, as in it belonged to TV. Which actually makes no sense now that I think about it.
