Verb "do" is missing

Pitäisi olla englanniksi "Why they do not want that television"

"Why do they not want that television" olis parempi.

"Why don't they want that television" olisi paras, but Duolingo seems to avoid contractions for some reason, so "Why do they not want that television" is probably what we are going to have to settle for.

They should accept both. There are other questions in this course that accept contractions.

this is grammatically incorrect. As such, the sentence is missing "do". It's not a question in its' current format but the translation is.
