    Do you have a TV in your Bedroom?

      we used to - but end up watching it too much before we go to bed.  now, instead, we "read" on our iphones or ipads, which is essentially the same thing, unfortunately!  smile  can't get rid of the technology that easily! 

      my husband and i like to wind down before we go to bed and since we don't want to bother the other person with a light on, the iphone/ipad is working out fine.

      Yep.  Like others have posted, we enjoy watching TV as we wind down sometimes.  We also enjoy exchanging back rubs once a week or so.  It's nice to watch something while we do that.

    Definitely not. My husband tends to stay up into the wee hours watching Russian WW2 movies several times a month and it's annoying enough when he does it out in the living room, let alone sitting next to me while I'm trying to sleep. tongue

      I know that feeling. My husband watches science documentaries every time he returns from work, I don't think I would be able to stand watching it in the bedroom too. No bedroom is for relaxation and planning the family future

    No, we mostly use televisions to play video game consoles--and all of those are out in the living room.

    Otherwise, it's streaming/downloading media and reading/listening to news.

    Yes I do have a 20 Inch Samsung HD LCD TV in the bedroom, and a 32 Inch Panasonic in the living room.

    BUT, I have not wired up an aerial to the one in the bedroom. It is solely for DVD use only, that is a rule in my flat - no Television in the bedroom. A snuggle in front of a DVD is another thing altogether.

    We do, but seldom turn it on. I used to be so against it, but when you have kids who want to watch Hannah Montana all day, it comes in handy.

    ..yep...i have one..but only 'cuz i live alone...when i was married (for the umpteenth time) was never on...well maybe I should say once in a while to watch some 'good stuff'

    i turn it on now to fall asleep smile bascially...i can only watch it for about 10-15 minutes...that's it....

    I would very much like to have NO TV on at all - but instead I have to hear it all day cuz the guy I work for has it on - plus he is slightly deaf so it is LOUD!  So no, I don't have one in my bedroom, but it makes no difference since I have to hear the living room one until about 11 pm.  I listen to my Ipod and turn on a fan and than drowns out some of the sound.  But really, I hate TV.  Some friends just gave me one but it is still out in my truck because I'm probably just gonna put it in storage. TV is basically evil, I'm convinced.

    We have one TV, and it's in the living room. I've never wanted one in the bedroom. If we want to cuddle up with a movie, we do it on the couch. On a couple of isolated occasions, we've brought my laptop in the bedroom to watch one. If my husband is horizontal, he falls asleep though, so it's kinda pointless.

    My husband and I have a total of five tvs. in the house. Two are in the bedrooms that used to be my Daughter's and Son's rooms. Yes, my husband and I have one in our bedroom, too. He watches that tv more than I because he has a comfortable chair I bought him, Christmasses ago. We just got a Big-Screen tv for the living room after not haing a tv in there for many years. He does need the relaxation after work because he works hard everyday. And the last tv is downstairs in the family room because  that is where we went to watch tv as a family when our kids lived at home. And I believe the tv in the bedrooms helps to unwind after your day at school or work.

    I watch the tv in the bedroom occasionally when I'm really tired and want to relax but it's almost always off by 11 p.m. and then I read. In the summer time I usually don't watch tv at all and tend to read a lot.

    I don't have a TV in my bedroom, but my computer is in there. It really sucks, because my bed is very close to it. My 6'2" 180 pound partner feels the need to be on the computer when I am trying to sleep, and often stumbles and falls onto the bed, and either wakes me up, or crushes me in the avalanche!

    We live in a very tiny two bedroom apartment, and there isn't very much room for anything. I think I may have 2 feet of floor space available in my bedroom, so it makes moving around very difficult for overly large people.

    But, having the computer in my bedroom, also allows me a little privacy, when the TV is on. he is watching Preditor in the living room right now, and has the volumes on so loud, I can hear it like I'm sitting right there. But, like I said, our apartment is very very small.

    I would, but my bedroom is too small even for a small one. A wall mounted one is out of the question, since the walls are steal-concrete. Actually, it's not a very nice room to be in, or to feel comfortable in. I just go there to sleep.
