Do you still watch TV?

I've been thinking about this lately, since people say to me have you seen or that on TV and I say no. They seem to be shocked. Then I simply explain when I'm at home and have an opportunity to do things, I'm either watching films, chatting online & listening to music or doing other things.

That's when I'm at home & awake, most of the time though I'm out of the house either at work or doing sociable stuff which means when I am at home, the last thing I want to be doing it watching mostly junk on the television.

I've got Sky Digital & Cable yet I hardly even put the TV on in my room. There's things I notice in listings in magazines sometimes that I want to watch, but always forget or forget to record them.

The shows I do tend to watch are interesting, not the stuff your average person watches. It makes me laugh the people that watch the same shows day in day out with nothing else to do. They really need to get out more.

So, it really doesn't surprise me that most men aged 18-34 don't have time to watch TV as much as anyone else. For most, it's not that they don't have time it is more like there are much better things to do.

TV needs to become more interactive, even more so than it is already. Then we might see the figures reversed. There also needs to be some better things to watch, instead of the 90% of junk that is on now. Most of us get bored browsing through all of that before we find something we want to watch so we never get it to - the power has already been killed to the TV.

Then you've got to include all of the commercial advertising that is thrown in there which we don't care for. At least with email we can filter it. The best thing you can do with TV is switch channels on the breaks and come back in a minute or two.

Depends what you are interested in, I'd watch a variety of things if they were shown on TV but they are not. Music channels, Discovery and the things aimed at my age group are good but a lot of the stuff shown - It is hard trying to figure out just who it would be suitable for, that's the problem!
