If I'm on my laptop, I will sometimes watch television. It makes it so much easier at times. Now, if I'm on our desktop, I won't be watching television since it's not in the same room.

Um, well I'm going to be totally honest. Right now I have a hockey game on the computer, a hockey game on the radio and a hockey game on the television...all while I'm surfing the net.... I'm going to say I'm probably in the extreme yes category to that question haha.

You definitely seem to have hockey on the brain. Right now, I'm watching Monday's The Bachelor. Gotta get caught up on my television.

All the time on my computer, I always have the television on. I think a lot of people do the same. If there is nothing on the television, I will put a dvd on.

I like to have some kind of noise going on in the room, whether I'm on the computer, or just cleaning. It just gets way to quiet at times, especially if no one's home, or everyone's in bed.

Yes I agree, I always like to have some background noise when I am alone in the house. It is company in a way.

Yes I do indeed. I like to multi-task like that. :)

I'm catching up on my shows I've missed the last few days. We have a DVR, and it helps hold our shows until we can watch them and/or burn them to disc. Right now, I'm watching House Hunters on HGTV. Now that's an interesting show.

I always have the television on and watching it when I am on the computer. If I am busy and can't actually stare at the screen then I listen to it as I work and keep up with what is going on, by the time a movie or any show has finished I know exactly what has gone on. It's really fun when I have to be on YouTube, etc. for some reason at the same time, then I'm working on the computer, "watching" TV And listening to whatever I had to go and listen to on YouTube...or another site like YouTube. By the time I finish that, then I've kept up with the show, listened to YouTube, etc. and worked on the computer and Still know what's going on in the 3 different directions! I'm great at multi-tasking! ;)

Yes, I do watch, or have tv on while I'm on the internet. If I am home, my tv is on. I have to say, when I'm online, I don't comprehend what is going on with the television program. Or, if I'm paying attention to what is on tv, my online venture suffers.

Yes, it's useful, but it's hard to do both of them at the same time. I usually watch TV while I surf in the internet.

Yes infact when ever im on my laptop im watching tv. Like right now im watching the celtics vs jazz game. That is why I love having a laptop before I had one I couldnt watch tv while on the internet since I didnt have a tv in my computer room so all I did was just listen to music.

I like to watch TV while working on my computer and I can do that with my desktop also because both the screens are side by side.

I pretty much always watch tv when I'm on the computer. I have 2 tv's in my house, one in my room and one in the living room, so no matter where I place my pc, there's a tv in the same room. Most times I don't actually "watch" the tv, most times its actually just on for noise, unless I'm listening to music on the pc, then I leave the tv off.

If there's the occasional TV programme I've missed (on BBC,anyway..) I'll look out for it on their iplayer website..it's good to find things you like! maybe it's a Vista incompatibility thing,but I can't finish the download of the UK Channel 4's "4OD" equivalent app.. most of my TV I'll still watch off satellite,though..

My computer and tv is in the same room. I always have the tv on, but dont really watch it. Its more of a background noise thing.

Hi, normally I watch or at least listen to the television when I am on the computer. My main computer is in my living room and I can move around my home because my laptop is wireless.

Yes, I do. Frequently! Right now, I am on my computer, and watching the news at the same time!!

Yea, I do that all the time. Oftentimes, I'll go between the computer and the TV. Most of them time, I listen to the TV. Whatever I do, the TV is one very often just for background noise or if I'm waiting for a favorite show to come one.

My desktop pc is in my living room, and the tv is on from morning to night... LOL, seriously when the tv gets turned off we are leaving or going to sleep. So yes, I watch and listen to the tv when I am online...as it is, I have been trying to do research and trying out new paying sites, and I have been on the computer alot more lately --so thank goodness for the tv, that my kids can watch what they want during the day and hubby loves getting the remote at night right now...LOL happy mylotting.

Yes, I do that. But, I would rather say listen to the TV 'cause my eyes were on the monitor, LOL. I do this some times when I'm surfing the net and I'd like to watch the news so I turn on the TV. But, I don't this everyday 'cause I have to save electricity so I just check the news on some sites like Reuters and CNN but when I'm interested in the local news, I watch the TV.
