    Most of my time is spent online visiting different sites and doing different tasks that I hardly have enough time for my TV. In fact I can stay for weeks without putting on my TV. I am just being curious, in addition to working online do you still have enough time to watch your TVA.

    That's pretty long time ago you open the TV. Not too much of a big surprise since virtually everything can be done online these days including viewing the TV. I seldom just open my TV after some weeks or months of staying away.

    Yes that's the point @terry ever since I got almost addicted to working online visiting several websites a day I hardly have the time to watch TV. I seldom just relax watching the TV, but if I want to get more serious I go online.

    I watch Hula and Netflix and these are both streaming services,and I get the local channels free like PBS with an antenna though. Hula has a lot of the old TV series on it and the new ones as well, for like eight dollars,but not that many movies to choose. They say Hula has the best selection of TV shows though between the two,and they include the IT Crowd(British) and old ones like The Doris Day Show(funny and some different times).

    Almost never. I stopped watching TV long ago, because most of the things that I want to watch, I can find them online. I do sometimes watch HBO and stuff like that, for TV Shows, but other than that, not so much.

    I watch news on TV on daily basis. Unless there is no power, then I can stop watching. During my free times I also watch some movies.

    I only watch a few times a week. I think this is because I can just watch the shows on the internet.

    I think now that TV is moved to the internet. I watch it less and less. I guess only reason I do watch TV is through the netflix, amazon and hotstar apps. Those are good enough for my taste.

    I only watch television if I need to watch a live NBA game. I rarely watch television because I can stream any show I want online. If I want to watch a TV series, I'll stream it from NetFlix using my PC.

    Then there is very excellent internet in your country. As for me, relying on the internet can be tricky since it keeps on fluctuating.It really causes a lot of stress, so I better watch my favorite shows on the television.

    These days I am forced to watch TV on daily basis due to the commonwealth games happening in Australia. I am a big fun of them and even at the time of writing this, I am also busy watching basketball between Australia women vs Jamaica.

    I don't think anyone watches Tv anymore. The only people I know who still watch Tv are these old folks and that is only for NEWS updates.

    Online streaming is the new thing, nobody needs cable anymore.

    I also feel like very soon cable will go extinct and internet service providers. Will take over.
