Translation:We all want to watch TV.

想 and 要 are very similar, but not always interchangeable. It is a tricky thing to learn, recommend https://www.chineseboost.com/grammar/xiang3-yao4-xiang3yao4-difference/
The reason this translation is not correct is that the sentence includes 都 which means all.
We would like to watch TV = 我們想看電視
We all would like to watch TV = 我們都想看電視
Small, nuanced difference, but both languages are capable of expressing this difference so for a correct translation you need to include 'all'.
I got this wrong too. "电视" means "television" whereas "电视节目" means a television show/program.
What is confusing is in another exercise in this module we are asked to translate "我的姐姐喜欢看美国电视" and the translation we are provided is "My older sister likes watching American TV shows." It seems like if we can infer that the sister actually likes American shows and not American Television sets, we should also be able to assume that this sentence is saying we want to watch television shows and not look at TVs.
