Hi, Visitor. We are in the process of creating an area for cases such as this, when you don't know where to post something.
As a rule, the choice depends on the purpose of your post. This section is basically designed to talk about "All experiences that are not a NDE or ADC, such as OBEs, Spiritually Transformative Events, Reincarnation, Psychic, Prayer, Precognitive Dreams, etc.", so binarual beats seem to fit in fine.
As far as I am aware, binaural beats are aimed at brainwave entrainment by playing a frequency into one ear and a different frequency into the other ear, so as to obtain a third tone. I cannot imagine this being successfully achieved without the use of a headset, headphones, earphones or earbuds.

Here is why I cannot imagine this system to apply to TV.
As you described, binaural beats can be targeted at achieving a modified state of consciousness, and users should be made fully aware of this, before exposing themselves to the tones, just like when taking a psychoactive substance that alters your normal state of alertness.
If the TV or the radio could produce brainwave entrainment, that could result in people driving in a modified state of consciousness and being a danger for road traffic, for instance.
Of course, binaural beats can also be used to enhance your state of alertness and concentration, but I would never venture into using any such systems for the first time unless I were in a safe place were I cannot cause danger to myself or others, as individual reactions may vary. I also feel that brainwave entrainment should not be administered to minors or to anybody suffering from unstable conditions without the supervision of an expert.
I hope this helps.
