Is TV'en not acceptable? is it not a contraction? Or is that rule significantly different in Norwegian?

I think the rule is that you use a hyphen with words that are abbreviations such as TV, PC etc.

Apostrophe is not used much in Norwegian. And when I see it, it is often used for dialogue in text that are meant to be in dialect.
