    We din't really watch TV, although we both grew up on it ... din't have it in the house 'til the younger Nutzs were older (music was always on ... )

    Now we find ourselves watching the 'Flix, or maybe the Hoola Hoops or some Prime ... 'though we've never paid for the cables or a dish, we find ourselves paying now ...

    Change my mind ...

    METV and Antenna tv -both classic channels reruns from the 60’s to 80’s and still the best stuff on today

    TCM is good too

    TV land lost my interest when they started playing shows from the late 90’s, how can that be classic? Makes me feel old

    I rarely watch tv, but it's either TCM or PBS.

    Don't watch much live TV these days. If I do it is the BBC. Most of my watching is on catch up. channel 4 has a lot of really good foreign language drama series under the "Walter presents" banner, so I would have to choose channel 4 as my favourite.

    YouTube. I am finding that virtually anything I need to repair has a video of a guy doing it. Also to see the Beatles on the Sullivan show or Hank Sr. on demand can improve my day instantly.

    We stream almost entirely. The only time we watch actual TV is for the evening news, and live sports. Otherwise, we have Amazon Prime and Netflix. I would love to get rid of cable TV, but I wouldn't save much money, because I still need internet and landline telephone, and I still would need a subscription service that carries local and sports channels. I was interested in YouTube TV for that, but they just raised their price. Where I am, my only choices are Comcast and FIOS.

    We haven't had regular tv for about 18 years now but in the last 4-5 years we have subscribed to Netflix.

    but I noticed in the last year or so Netflix is becoming just darker and the F word rate is climbing in all their Originals, so probs will pull the plug and look elsewhere.

    The problem with "landline" phones these days is that most of them ride on the physical cable that your TV and internet service ride on. Once the power goes out, so does your "landline".

    It's rarely like the old days when you had a powered copper feed coming into your house dedicated to regional Bell service that would generally still work if you lost power.

    I haven't turned the TV on in my house in years. When at someone else's house, I just watch what they watch.

    We do watch a lot of TV:
    MSNBC, CNN, PBS (nights/weekends), Comedy Central, Food Network, and lots of Sports, wherever

    Lately, completely addicted to Netflix:
    binge-watched Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, now on OZARK- we watch 1 show every night around 10 PM, people are creatively VERY evil it seems! ( but not me)

    We haven't had a TV for about 15 years. We've had Netflix for a while now, mainly to ease the monotony of being stuck in the house for months.

    I watch TV over the air with rabbit ears. I get about 16 channels that way. My current favorite is Grit. Lots of great westerns nonstop.
