    Do you own a TV? I find that my iPad fits my need for a TV.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I have one TV which is in my living room. It picks up all the terrestrial channels and I have a separate Roku digital box which gives me a good selection of "on demand" films and programmes.

    Whenever I watch the telly, I always seem to end up falling asleep, which seems to defeat the purpose of having one.

    Yes, I do. I pick up whatever channels I can get over the air via an antenna. And it's enough for me. I also own a laptop with a HDMI cable and adapter. So when I want to watch something from my laptop and display it to my big screen, I can do that as well.:oldthumbsup:

    My family has two TVs: basically one to watch and one to play video games on. I rarely watch TV anymore, but I do listen to the music channels sometimes.

    Really?
    Some people have noted or pointed out that THAT IS THE PURPOSE (of television) - to KEEP THE PEOPLE ASLEEP ! (dull of mind, in a stupor, compliant with the world direction) ....

    To be honest, I do like having a TV - not just for information and news, but as a bit of relaxation. I love period dramas!

    I have one TV, but no cable. I use an indoor antenna that lets me get 17 channels. I mostly watch the news each morning and evening, and an occasional show later on if there's something interesting, which is an amount decreasing in number.

    Yes, but I barely use it because, just like you, my iPad fits my need for a TV.

    Doesn't watching a small screen for long periods put a strain on your eyes?
    I have a laptop with a 15" screen, but I prefer my 43" TV for watching TV shows.

    No, but I do lower the resolution if I use it for long periods of time. I like that I can multitask while using the iPad.

    No. I don't watch TV, so no need to own a TV. Too many other interests and hobbies to keep me occupied. And I find TV rather boring. Watching TV is usually an activity that is far too passive to hold my attention.

    Yep. TV is probably the most powerful propaganda and social engineering tool available. For the main part, I don't think it does much to encourage critical thinking. It's a great way for anyone who doesn't like Christianity to bombard Christians who watch TV with worldly, liberal standards, ethics, morals, and values.

    Yes... and to make sales of things people do not need, and would not get if they knew the truth about them!
    And to publish/broadcast a lie, but call it the truth..... (broadcast a lie often enough, and people often start to believe it is true... (since before 1950 this has been demonstrated with consumable products and with medicines) .....) I used to challenge people to try to find one commercial that did not lie..... few could be found.... or very few....

    I only have a TV screen to watch DVD/Blu-Ray movies on. I haven't watched any TV shows in years. I have watched some series on disc such as Breaking Bad, Vikings, Rome, Band of Brothers, etc.

    I find music more entertaining anyway.
