I want to get a pizza or
New preparation h at the store.
absolutely not. Can't do it. If my only option is to record and watch it later to zip thru the commercials, then that's what I do. That goes for any kind of TV other than sports (sometimes). Youtube TV has a feature to show only 'key plays' when you're recorded a sporting event. Great way to catch up on a baseball game after missing the first 6 innings.
Sure, on cable 'basic' basic. Life is good, or so they tell me
The only, only reason I know that broadcast TV still exist is because of this forum. With streaming, why would anyone do this to themselves?
Nope. I despise commercials, I just stream. Killed my cable sub back in 2012 and don't miss that either.
Sometime last year I was in a hotel. Couldn’t sleep, turned on the TV. Informercial for Adam & Eve on Comedy Central. Knew I wasn’t missing anything on the garbage box all these years.
newsflash - you can do all that with streaming. And probably pay at least half as much
If you don't watch commercials how do you know the latest cereal, lego toy, stuffed double taco whatever at taco hut...
I guess you could mute the ads...it is very revealing about americana
What about local news stories...I guess over air thingy...
Yes, I can live with commercials. I either go back to internet activity, or pickup an instrument - its like a time warp. Commercials compress to about 1 second worth of disruption as a result.
I don’t care about national news stories let alone local ones.
I do some streaming and if the cost of that ever gets out of hand I’ll drop that too. Not trying to be all self righteous, but there’s just nothing on the tv to justify paying for it with my money, let alone my time to sit and watch it.
We use to get both a morning paper and an evening paper. At least in local you can find music shows, art shows, local sports teams, the local cobbler ripping folks off.
I need it all (International/Natl/local/science)...
I am getting old, need to feed my synapse connections.
but that is me.
I watch way too much TV, and I do watch ( put up with) movies with commercials.
Nothing is worse than watching The Godfather ( either one) with ****ing commercials!
(Especially Michael in the Italian restaurant- that scene ALWAYS gets split! WTF!!%#$#$%@%[email protected]$%&#!!!)
* it's a family fave, must watch, every time it's on- love it!
Never commercials. They've gotten worse specially on AMC.
Absolutely not. The only stuff I watch with commercials is sports.
Once you wander down the hall into the streaming room, it's amazing how much stuff is out there. I could actually with just my Roku device just turn my streaming provider off, and never want for anything, and may do just that. I keep YouTube TV mostly 'cause I'm a sports junkie, but....
Nope, no time for TV.
I've probably only watched 3 or 4 movies in the past 5 years.
I do play video games with my kids. But there is no time left over for "TV".
We very occasionally stream Youtube. My 3 young kids and I watch OLD programs that were made before I was born. Gomer Pyle, Andy Griffith, sit coms that still had family values.
We watch music lessons on youtube too. We have drums, guitars, and pianos. A 'how to' can save a lot of time trying to figure things out ourselves. Youtube's advertisements are out of hand if you don't have an adblocker though.
I noticed this inadvertently between various devices and browsers.
News? News comes from the internet. Everyone is a spin doctor now. There is no such thing as objective reporting. I can read many sources on the internet and then discern what is the 'objective data' and what is spin. I make my own conclusions.
Sometimes. There are a few streaming sites that are free but have commercials. Usually there is a skip button or the ads are 10 seconds or less.
Newsflash- I don't care. And, I would have to pay for every channel I like, which is a lot, and I'm sure many of them aren't even available streaming, and I doubt I would pay much less after having dozens of streaming subscriptions.
You guys running to pee during the commercials -- you do realize if you were watching Netflix you could hit "pause"?
