"La tele(visión)" is commonly said in Mexico instead of "el televisor". (I suppose this comes from "ver la tele(visión)". I suppose most people never knew there was a difference between the device and the signal.)
Also, we say "escuchar el radio" instead of "la radio". (Just for the sake of word gender balance.)
