The worlds first television broadcast happened in 1925. Farnsworth demonstrated his tech in ‘27.

He didn’t invent television or television broadcasts. He pioneered a technology that brought it forward. The inventor of the mobile phone didn’t invent telephones. IBM didn’t invent computers. Edison didn’t invent the lightbulb.

So how was a television broadcast demonstrated before he demonstrated his technology?

The OPs headline is incorrect. You can’t say he invented “television” when he didn’t and wasn’t the first to demonstrate a television broadcast.
