Can you live without TV?

January 10, 2018 11:00am CST
Well television is on our daily routine, in the morning we wake up the television is always there. We watch the news and any tv programs. Do you think you can live without a television? For me, I think I can, coz there's an alternative way to be busy to get updated because there is an internet to watch but television is the first and common way to know what is happening in the world. It is part of lives but I think we can live without it. How about you? Can you live without a television? Why?

I normally watch hours of tv a day, but there are also lots of days where I don't start to watch tv until around 8pm. I can go without, if I wanted. I'm not addicted. I just like many shows and its my down time.

I could live without it since I could be entertained with my laptop, but I do love watching TV in the evening.

I haven't had cable since I was 12 years old and I'm 22 now, so that is 10 years without actual television. I do watch Netflix and anime and youtube. If I didn't get to watch these things anymore, I would be sad, but I could live without it. As long as I have music I am happy.

I ditched cable last July, so yes, I'm living quite comfortably without television. I never watched much other than sports anyway.

Yes maybe I can for a short time. I don't watch TV a lot because I don't want a lot of noise. But if I don't have TV for too long it's quite boring in the house

I barely ever look at the TV. I have cartoon movies playing most of the day for my kids. I don't watch it at all so yeah I could definitely live without it.
