What would you do without the TV..??? In my place TV is always on... Like 15-20 hours per day... We have never been without the television... Even if we watch it or not... Its working for us... I have no time to sit and watch, but while working I can hear it.... I love my TV...

I'm not sure where I'd be either without my TV. I like having it on. Even if I'm not watching it, I like having it for the background noise.

@amandajay I find T.V. and Radio are distractions sometimes so I turned it off. and besides turning them off will save you electricity bill.

My TV is also on whenever I'm at home for many hours, but I don't necessarily watch it, sometimes I just use it to listen to what people say on talk shows while I surf the web or do some house choirs, but one thing is certain: even when I don't pay attention to it, my TV is working.

When I was a kid, I do love to watch TV too. But as I grow up, I have been busy and my interest in TV diminished little by little. I can live a day without TV. As long as I have a book or a laptop with internet connection, I will not get bored.

Past was the time without TV. It was more based on interaction with humans. If anyone wanted to have some time pass, still, interaction or planning up something with people around would work. We go to our native place.. There was no TV around 4-5 years back. Now, someone fixed a TV. But then was the time everyone just used to do chittar pittar(chatting)
