I don't have a TV, and if I was watching a Hulu video, I'd turn it off or pause it (unless they wanted to watch it.) It's kind of like not talking on your cell phone when you're in a checkout line: that is rude behavior, and you're minimizing the importance of the person/people right before you. A device is not important; people are!
Definitely not! I sometimes give my visitors some eye contact during the adverts if I feel like it!!
I am joking of course, yep, switch the TV off and have a chat for a few hours or more......
We always do, unless there are children, then we find something appropriate to keep them occupied.
I think switching off your television is the proper and courteous thing to do. You have to give respect to your guest, who has taken all the trouble to visit and meet you.
Always. It is rude and shows a lack of respect for your visitor if you do not. One other thing, you cannot hear what is being said, you can of course turn down the sound but that is neither one thing or the other.
Depend on visitors i do so if i don't like them... as it keeps them busy as it better that they start talk something foolish in which i am not intrested

Yes! Actually, I would probably switch it off if anyone came in the room. I just feel... weird holding a conversation while having the television on.
