At the moment I am reading various things from my email, from Facebook, from blogs, from webpages, while listening to music on my Amazon music page.
The TV isn’t even on. In fact, it’s rarely on, and usually when it is, it’s to also listen to music. I don’t watch TV very often with the exception of a few shows. I like Vikings, Blue Bloods, NCIS, Mom…. and reruns of Law and Order. I sometimes watch the news, but try to avoid that as much as possible. I don’t like being a captive audience of what is on TV, especially for the commercials. So I get most of the news online and from Google alerts. That way I can see the news in my own way and time.
I do watch movies on DVD at times, so it’s nice to have a wide flatscreen. But I don’t subscribe to Netflix and I’m not one to sit and watch a marathon of any TV show.
So, no, I probably would not ever get rid of my television. It has its purposes, and there are times when I’m not feeling well, and lying on the couch and just vegging on a TV show or movie is needed. Fortunately, that isn’t too often.
