A television is something that almost every household would have. However, I've been pursuing my degree for almost three years now and we don't have television available for us to watch. Somehow I tend to do everything with my laptop including watching movies, dramas, news etc. So television is somehow out of my life these days. Do you have a television, do you still watch it? What programmes do you watch?

No not really. Occasionally I will watch Netflix but at the most, probably for 1-2 hours per day. I mostly listen to music, engage myself in little 'projects' around the house (not limited to re-arranging, cleaning, going through items to donate some, selling things on eBay, organizing, and then re-organizing, etc). For some reason, even though I only work ~8 hours a day, I can't find the 'time' with everything else going on to actually sit down and watch TV. LOL! I don't mind though!

Of coarse I watch television there is always time for it. Even while I was in college and worked I would have time for watching tv. I had a schedule and would do all of my work between classes.

Yes, we do have a television, and we do watch quite a bit of it. We do enjoy watching television shows, and such.

Yes, whenever I have the opportunity. I watch Glee and America's top model. I also like the Storage War. I usually watch very late. But I spend more time in front of my laptop.

Hi, well it's been now 5 yrs am away from home so not so connected to TV but whenever i get time when am back home I do watch though it may cost my sleep. I love to watched Popoye Show, FRIENDS, movies and the list goes on. it is a good stress buster and the bad part is you never realise that it's been how long you are watching it :P All in all a good companion when you are alone.

I used to watch a lot of television as a kid. I used to watch a lot of cartoons. my favorite channel was cartoon network. I could watch TV the whole day. My dad used to scold me a lot for watching TV a lot.... Eventually i stopped watching cartoons and switched to watching songs and movies. Now as I have started working... I hardly get time to watch television. I have completely stopped watching TV. Can you believe it...that I was a person who loved to watch television and now I have stopped watching completely.

Yeah, everything is pretty much done on the computer or the iphone. My friends have iphones and they basically just surf the internet with it and watch movies or TV programs. Some of my other friends can't be bothered to wait for all the episodes to come out on TV so she just watches all of them at once on the computer and she has already finished a season of Merlin whereas on the TV, the program has only reached episode 3! I still love my TV and I still watch it everyday. I can't be bothered to load things and waste my internet to watch TV programs so I prefer to watch it on TV. I don't mind waiting for a specific program because after watching every thing on the computer, there's nothing left to watch anymore so I prefer to wait. If I miss an episode then I'll watch it online. Sometimes I have the TV going on the background while I'm surfing on the computer. If something is loading then I'll watch turn around to watch the TV while my internet loads. I like to watch funny shows like Wipeout USA, Talk about your Generation and a few cartoons.

I don't watch television no more. Perhaps I am too busy with my study. I'm always occupied with countless lectures, assignments, tests and quizzes. Now I'm getting ready for my final exam for this semester which I almost have no time to sleep. Anyway, similar with you, I prefer to watch all kinds of videos and news on the internet. The television had no interesting programmes on so I can't get myself a good reason to switch on the television.

hello, Yeah, we have television in our home and sometimes I watched some of my favorite cartoons. And it actually relieves my stress especially if I am doing something in my computer, like projects, reports and thesis. To rest myself and my pc at the same time I just watched some movies in the television. But actually we can do anything in our pc. right? so, you dont really need a television.
