I have a television but I never watch only about 10 mins a day the news. The rest I do on my laptop Movies, writing, games, etc. all done on my laptop
Yes! I close friend of mine owns a large high def TV but never watches anything on it. For about 2 years I went with out a TV. I found it to be peaceful and relaxing. I learned that I had it on just for background noise. Currently, I'm thinking of getting rid of UVerse and going back to no TV.
We go for periods of time without watching tv . There is so much rubbish on there these days , such a time waster a lot of the time .Now & then there are some interesting programes .
I prefer a good book, go for a swim etc .
I once went 2 years without owning a television. I didn't really miss it since I usually read books. However, I did occassionally watch Netflix on my laptop. Now, I have cencelled Netflix and have purchased a TV. I don't see what all the fuss is about. I feel like I'm watching the modern day Coliseum.
Yes--me. I only watch what I choose on my laptop. I went a year overseas without television and discovered it to be one of the best things I could do for myself. My mind was free of the barrage of junk; I was no longer a slave of mindless media; and I had so much time on my hands to do something useful. I usually read books. Now I only watch free TV on Hulu, which saves me thousands in cable expenses. It works for me and I intend to keep it this way.
I am not watching TV now and have been TV-free going on 4-5 months. If I had a nice, big, convenient flatscreen in my bedroom, I'd be a TV-watching addict, however.
Currently, I don't. I have just moved and don't have a TV! But I am finding that I am coping extraordinarily well. After the initial phase of dearly missing my regular programs, you realize life is far more interesting. But... I am still planning on buying a TV. There are some good, worthwhile programs out there.
I know that traditional Omish people do not ever view television. Personally everyone i know watches at least occasionally.
No because as much as people have a disdain for television, it is a source of information. There are alot of people in our area with no computer so they can't their information from the internet. Until computers are universally available and affordable, television is necessary since newspapers are going the way of the dinosaur. That being said, you don't have to watch everything because your brain would be mush.
TV is far form appealing nowadays. I watch it, but not that much.
Someone who never watches it is fairly common, but finding someone who has never seen it is rare!!
Well especially in the western world!
I think my mother is one such person. I hardly remember seeing her in front of a TV when I was growing up. I don't know why. She told me that when she was growing up, her half brother and half sister occupied the TV when they were little. They sat really close to the TV and nobody told them to move back. She never really got along with her half brother and sister and felt that she didn't belong in front of the TV, so maybe that's why.
I don't watch tv unless I am over some ones house. I own a tv but I don't watch it because I don't have cable and my flat screen tv does not get a good signal so I like the internet better cause it's more interactivie than the tv
fantastic question, i know more than 100 of people they don't watch television because they live in a village and they don't have television .
many people who live in the villages(India) don't have television and electricity .
I am sharing my personal experienced .
I have a TV but I spend so much time playing video games and using my computer I have not watched TV in months. I dont know. I just lost interest I guess. I still watch TV shows but I have not payed attention to live TV for some time.
Yes, I do not. And have not for years. My husband watched while he was still alive, but it was not an activity we shared. In fact, it was one I discouraged. With handicapped children, I could not deal with the constant noise. If I vegetated in front of the box, I would never accomplish my homeschool and writing goals. The first year I turned it off, I wrote two books from scratch in just over three months.
I do not have a television for my RV (by choice, I took it out). When we vacation, no telly there either. My children will stand mesmerized before it when they are at friends' houses. That concretes my belief it is not entirely beneficial to them.
I do allow them to watch certain video for educational purposes, but they would prefer the interactive games the BluRays offer over the actual films.
Yeah two of my friends do not watch television. They even don't own a Television.
My brother and his wife stopped watching television twenty years ago.

How much television do you watch?Try and have at least one day away from the TV, ideally longer. It is the greatest scientific indoctrination tool ever invented. Free your mind and turn it off. You have a mind of your own, please start to use it for yourself; “Believe nothing, no matter where you...
