I never watch TV except for soccer. But rarely I watch Netflix and Prime on my phone in bed.

I don’t watch television unless someone else has it on at their house. I use my tv for music.

I can’t get interested in TV shows. I get most of the times distracted. I listen to the radio for news and watch music videos on YouTube. When I visit friends I watch there the occasional tvshow.

I don’t watch TV. Very few shows are worth it. And even when they are I can’t be bothered to wait for them to be on and to sit through advert breaks. Streaming is much better but even then there are only so many shows I would rate highly.

At home, I only watch TV with my GF. I never turn it on when I’m by myself.
I turned it on once in a while while I was here on the study, but usually just turned it off again after flipping around a few channels.
I did watch a few episodes of Bar Rescue though.

I watch news but that’s about it.

Not as a habit, no. I normally can’t focus for long enough. Though I just started re-watching The OA on Netflix, a favorite series of mine, and can’t keep myself away from it. But I think it’s more due to that it’s so well made, and everything in the show has a purpose, nothing is out of place, and the pace only picks up as it goes. Helps that it’s weird af and only gets weirder too.

I don’t watch TV unless I’m at someone else house for a visit and they have the TV on

I don’t have the motivation or patience to watch through TV shows or drama

I have enough going on my head. A few times i"ve watched a movie all the way to the end it had a grounding effect on me.

It’s a rarity. I’m tending to catch up shows on my computer on the 2k monitor. Sometimes when dad is away I’ll steam stuff that I want to watch but usually dad watches tv all day and night. I just get early mornings so whilst I’m jogging on the spot and exercising I’ll watch some shows.

I find it hard to focus on tv

I try to keep it to a few hours a week. It’s a waste of time that could be spent fulfilling my own dreams instead of experiencing someone else’s second hand.

Only On Demand Streaming services. We have an arcane law on the need for a TV Licence of about £160 a year in the uk - where the salesman are known to use dirty tactics - so i stay away from live tv as its broadcast.

Theres currently a revolt and the BBC are losing millions from people refusing to pay it.
