Haven't watched TV since 1971 when my parents made me go live in the yard.

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
We stopped having T.V. programming around the time they went from analog to digital and 'the box' became necessary. We have a T.V. for watching movies, but nothing else. We've never looked back!

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
i've been tv-free for more than a decade, and i love it!
when i used to have one, it was almost an automatic response to come home and plant myself in front of it, even though there was mostly just bullshit showing.

ok, i have a computer (obviously) and can watch things on my laptop, if i want to. but, i don't have any network television access, and i really like it this way.

it has allowed me a lot more time for things like reading or doing things that seem a lot more beneficial for me than zoning out in front of a propaganda box...

it also seems that not having a tv has allowed me to see through a lot more of the bullshit and "programming".

i would assume, since this is glp, that i'm not alone. how many of you threw away your tv? and, if so, what are the positives you've encountered? negatives?

if you still have a tv (or many), i don't hold it against you.
you're free to chime in to.

cheers

Me too! Chucked my TV out in 2008 when my daughter went to Aus. ( she was the only one who watched it) lol.
TV licensing still harass me though....but I just ignore them.
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
I have a TV, but cut the cord about 10 years ago.

I only miss it once a year for one big sporting event. There are other ways to watch it though - just not the network coverage. Even that sucks now as they are more interested in what Hollyweird stars are attending and what they're wearing. Who fucking cares??!!!!

I have a Roku to watch a few live streams on YouTube though. I really don't want to have to go somewhere else to watch some of these explosive congressional hearings.

It's much better to get news on the internet and a tremendous relief to not have to cringe and suffer through all the sickening commercials. Why people are paying $100+ every month for cable to pump that shit into their living rooms I can't figure out.

Hell, I won't even listen to radio anymore because of the commercials.

Most post live sports are on Twitch, FYI. UFC, Sports what ever the main events.
 Quoting: SoloTrashyCrowd


Thank you.

NBC and NBCS has a stranglehold on this event though, but I'll try this next year.

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
My question is why dont people turn there TVs 4 ks into big internet Screens...its easy to do...

And its so much nicer looking at news or GLP on a 70 inch screen ...

Then an old day little computer screen...??

i hate little screens ...

if i could buy a 100 inch i would just for internet....

i remember buying from costco in 2007 my first big flat screen it was a whopping 26 inch and it was 1000 bucks...

Then i returned it got a 32 inch for 1000 bucks ...then i returned that ...then i got a 42 inch for a 1000 bucks..

Then i hung on to that...then saw a 60 inch for grand ..i got that..still have today..my boys have that in there room ...for there Nintendo Switch games..

i thought i had lots of songs..i have nearly 11,000 songs...

and i download mostly everything i see to watch if we want to see it ...i have 60 gb with my straight talk and i live near a tower no one uses .....so i can download a 1 gig byte in around 5 mins ...

through the phone tethering...

so yeah at the end of the month i make sure i am always around my cap of 60 gbs on the phone...

And my regular internet we use as the whole family around 400 gbs...but its slow like 4 mpbs

Vs the data which is 60 mpbs....

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
I have a television, but I haven't had cable for maybe 5 years now. Possibly longer, I don't remember. I can only watch DVDs on my TV.
 Quoting: Anonymous Girl


Same here, we watch DVDs and rent movies, we don't have cable TV and when we do watch OTA TV broadcasts it's only for bad weather.

I can't tolerate seeing commercials so we just don't watch much OTA either.

Husband's mom used TV as a baby sitter so he has a harder time with broadcast withdrawals but he is getting better the larger our DVD collection grows.

Me, I can go days without any media playing, even music as I really love peace & quiet.

No TV since 2008 but I do have Netflix on my laptop, although that very rarely gets watched. Also stopped listening to the radio. With the time this freed up I learned how to garden, did a Master Gardener's class, and learned how to shoot and ride a dirt bike. Way more fun
Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.

Re: who here doesn't have a TV?
I really used to enjoy sports on TV -- by that, I mean the games themselves (football, basketball, baseball) as strategic competitions.

Too many mind-numbing ads (now heavily propagandized) made televised sports unwatchable for anyone with IQ over 50. Once sports became ESPNized and social justice/race became inescapable, I simply cancelled cable and gave my TV away.

All this cultural nonsense and garbage has even ruined sports. It's a sad loss for me and many others, but I've moved on.

I miss watching those games and some other things, but I'll never own another TV.

I get the same response from guests. They look at me like I'm nuts for not owning a tv. I guess its abnormal for Americans not to own one.

I haven't owned one in 7 years and am just fine with just my computer that I can watch movies on, get the news, and look at glp.
