Only 1 here... Only certain shows I still watch, and I end up having to Tivo (Moxie) them. It's much cooler to forward thru commercials. There's more things I would Tivo, I just don't have a lot of free time to watch TV.

The only TV I still watch on a regular basis every week are shows that pertain to Poker.

Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament (FSN)
The World Poker Tour (The Travel Channel)
The World Series Of Poker (ESPN)
High Stakes Poker (GSN)

My favorites include ... Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey,
Chris Moneymaker, Gus Hansen, Jennifer Harman and Annie Duke.

I do.

We don't even have cable. We have two TVs in the house, and we rely on rabbit ears. When I go back home to visit my dad, his digital cable is such a delight.

I do-I have a VCR, that's it. And a DVD player that doesn't record.

I really don't. I see something I'd like to watch but then I see one episode and forget to follow up, or forget it's on altogether.

My tv watching usually consists of reruns of shows I used to watch.

I do but I never just sit and watch TV, it's usually on in the background while I'm doing something else, like reading or working on my laptop, etc.

It used to be easy for me to watch tv and be on the computer in my apartment but now that i moved, there is a separate room with the computers in it and there is not a tv in sight.

I can't say I watch much TV beyond local sports.
  • I can choose and receive hourly-updated news from RSS feeds from any website that has RSS Syndication. I don't have to wait for the 5 minutes of story I want to watch in the hour long news broadcast.
  • I can get my favourite shows in high-definition the night after they air on BitTorrent
  • I can get international sporting events like F1 races on BitTorrent

Why bother with TV? It's inefficient.

I was just having this same discussion with a friend. My exact words were, "I haven't really watched tv for about 3 years now".

I have had TiVo the entire time and I haven't really watched live tv since. I mean, even if I do watch something in "real time", I generally pause it for about 5 minutes to allow the TiVo to get ahead of itself thus avoiding commercials altogether.

Owning a TiVo has it's drawbacks though......


You get used to the 8 second "go back" button.....

Here's the example;

You go to the movies and if there is a part that you did not hear well....you reach for the remote.......at the movie theater...
It happens to me all the time. I call it the "TiVo Syndrome".
