    Default Do You Still Watch TV?

    I find with my hobbies I have these days (anime,manga,games) that I have no time for watching TV. I also think most shows on TV these days are just boring. I personally don't watch TV anymore.

    Do your hobbies of anime, manga and/or video games, etc take up too much of your time to watch TV? Or are you just as uninterested as to what's on as I am?

    The latter.

    The only reason I have a TV license and a cable box is because 1) owning a laptop apparently means it's mandatory to need a TV license, 2) the BBC sucks and 3) it's cheaper for me to have a TV/Phone/Internet bundle than Internet by itself.

    I haven't watched actual TV in years, and that was only because I wasn't even at home and there was nothing else to do. And even back then there was nothing worth watching at that time. The phrase 'One thousand channels and nothing's on' springs to mind.

    If I ever do watch something, it's a film or Formula One, but I watch those usually via an iPlayer / film-streaming app rather than fettling around turning my cable box on. Is more convenient to just watch stuff over the Internet as and when I deem myself wanting to. >.>

    I still watch TV, but rarely. Most of what plays are repeats of shows I've seen a hundred times, or just bad in general. I love anime because it fills this gap I have. I want a show with context and substance, and I want my characters to have depth and develop for the better or worse. Hell even most shounen have a better and more solid plot than anything I've seen on U.S. TV in the past five or so years.

    I'm not sure if I should be sad or happy with this, but it is what it is. The last time I checked; toonami is just airing Naruto, Bleach, and some other generic crap, I love me some Soul Eater though :P. So there is not even hope there (Although I do respect them trying to bring more anime into the States.). Honestly other than that I watch a few shows on Comedy Central and that's about it. Even those I DVR.

    I'm the same exact way. xD Between watching animes, reading mangas, and playing games, I have no time for TV anymore. Plus, I agree. There's nothing good on anymore. Most of the shows are all really stupid. There are a couple Iike, but for the most part I could care less. xD

    I will however watch an occasional movie, but that's it.

    If I'm honest I don't really watch anime anymore, due to university and the course being very busy I never get the chance to watch anything, that and there isn't anything on that interests me. I'd rather read a book.

    It depends on what you find interesting, there are a few good documentaries out there that are quite interesting but truthfully there isn't alot on other than the new Dr Who which is very good ^^

    cable companies have sports fans like myself by the man region. I have to have the more expensive cable package inorder to acquire the sports tier i want. Live sports will likely not be legally broadcast by mediums other than the powerful cable companies for years. Too much money for the leagues and cable companies. The NFL makes 3 BILLION dollars a year in just TV deal with the big three cable companies. Those networks must make more than the BILLION they spend. Netflix hulu and these other upstarts are too far behind financially to compete with the uber rich networks.

    I love sports and because of my fandom I will not be unsubbing cable anytime soon

    Occasionally. I watched the third series of walking dead (which to be honest was a bit poor even for a show about zombies). Mostly I just see things on the TV guide which interest me and then record. You will find the occasional gem but it's mostly just fools gold. Most of my time is spent on the laptop these days.

    Probably just before I go to sleep I "watch" TV. But by that I use it as background noise while I work or read/game. Its not necessarily that anime takes me from the TV, but rather I never enjoyed the TV, I tend to use it as an excuse to sit and relax with the family.

    As some people have said I only use for background noise. Living alone gets lonely so having somethin talk is quite satisfying.

    I usually just have it on for background noise if I'm doing something and no music sounds all that interesting at the time. Most of the time if I'm watching TV it's because I'm stepping out of my room and actually being sociable for a while (usually only when my mom doesn't work).

    Other than that I do watch it sometimes, but only specific shows. I don't have cable anyways so I can only watch what I can find online. Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, more recently Sherlock, and a few others are shows I watch regularly, but even they're spaced out. There's also a few older series that I've seen a million times over but keep watching because I love them so much, like The Addams Family or Quantum Leap. I'm also working on Dark Shadows as I slowly get the DVDs from Netflix, but that show's over 1200 episodes long so I don't expect to finish any time soon. xD

    I've probably watched more TV shows than anime in the last few years. Primarily I get them on DVD or Blu-Ray and marathon the really good ones. There are a few diamonds in the very, very large rough. Sturgeon's Law certainly applies.

    Depends.

    I watch "TV" in the sense that I watch television shows on Netflix and Hulu.

    As far as actually using the television and tuning to a channel for programming, I only do that if the internet is down or if I can't find it online.

    I have TV on most of the time when i am at home, but i barely watch it. I listen some of it and i try to sometimes watch the british soaps - Coronation St, Emmerdale and Eastenders.
    ALso sometimes i might watch some nature show or if a good movie is on. Most of time Tv is idle on some news channel so i do hear whats happening, but dont really need to go and watch it.
    Some quiz shows are also still entertaining, but mostly TV is crap these days...
