I’ve seen quite a few homes with no tvs to be seen, like what are yall doing with your time? I couldn’t imagine a family room without a tv.

      Eventually your computer chair and counterstrike posture give you chronic shoulder pain. Then you have to migrate back to the couch and the gamepad. It’s the circle of life.

    Don’t have TV for almost 20 years now, don’t miss it a bit. There’s only crap on TV, nothing I wanna waste my time on, and adverts all over the place. Who wants that?

    I have TV, but I don’t use it. I mostly use computers for games, and coding…

    Gaming is more fun than programmes for me as I like my usage to be interactive rather than passively consuming.

    I have a TV but without connection to any “linear TV” service. I use it as big monitors for my computer.

    For entertainment there are streaming services like Prime Video. I also use Twitch a lot.

    I don’t understand how you can watch tv with all of the other things you could be doing tbh.

    I’m my mind, sitting in front of a device that only lets me watch things it decides on the timeframes it decides whilst blasting me with ads is one of the last things I want to do with my time.

    Almost anything is better

    I bought a projector and purposely didn’t buy blackout blinds for the room it’s in. It means when the weather is nice outside, I can’t sit on the couch and waste time. If I’m desperate or sick then I’ll use my laptop.

    It ended up in me spending a lot more time outdoors and getting back into climbing. Keeps me healthier and sane tbh.

    I do have small kids and thus not a lot of time for myself. The time I do have I spend on martial arts, kettlebells, learning to play the guitar or just hanging on the couch reading and trying not to fall asleep. If the kids are awake I’m mostly doing stuff with them like playing with Lego, role playing or whatever they feel like in the moment.

    Computer. Workbench. Gym and guinea pig cage.

    That’s all I need.

    After 11 years of no TV, we just purchased one so that our 2 year old won’t have to stare at a phone screen to watch educational videos. After he leaves for college, I’d be happy to return to a no TV house.

    To answer your question, my wife is a lifelong learner. She spends most nights reading or taking courses to further her career. I’m a hobby person - playing instruments, woodworking, 3d printing, electronics, house projects. If we want to watch a new movie, we’ll see it in theaters. We don’t have time for tv shows. We’ve never watched The Office, GOT, Breaking Bad, The Wire, etc. which makes for interesting double dates.

    Spend some time with the kids, go for a walk with the dog (and kids), read, relax, work out, buy groceries, watch shows / movies on a laptop, make love, play games on a PC, go out, go for a drink, meet with friends… so many possibilities

    what are yall doing with your time?

    We use our time more efficiently. Since you can stream everything from the internet, you don’t need to work your schedule according to the time, a show on TV starts. You don’t need to be at home at 7 because a new episode ist airing. With streaming you can decide on when you want to watch something.

    Another benefit of not having (classic) TV is, that you barely see any commercials or ads (given you use an adblocker). When I have the chance to watch TV (when staying in hotels or visiting friends wo have TV) I’m astonished how many ads (even in the TV menu) and commercials get thrown down our throats. It’s like a stream of ads interrupted with shows.
