Yeah, it's a pretty dead forum, largely due to the unmoderated preponderance of nutcases and cranks*. But let me at least try to answer.
People evidently do still watch TV, or Trump would not get so angry about its exposure of his lies. But it might be interesting to know what proportion now watch on broadcast channels (using a radio signal and antenna), and what proportion on internet-mediated versions.
However I have not had a TV since 1999. I got rid of mine when I moved to the US for a couple of years and never bothered to buy another when I came back to London in 2001. I use radio and the internet for news and the Financial Times for commentary. TV seems to be full of crap, so far as I can gather.
My son and I find our lives busy enough as it is. When he gets home from school we have a cup of tea and then he does homework until it is time for supper, after which he veges out for a bit (on snapchat etc with his mates) and then he does his piano practice and then it's time for bath and bed. So when we would watch TV I have no idea, except possibly at weekends.
Not worth it.
* Later footnote: See below: QED
Well firstly, I hate to break it to you, but I’m a Trump supporter, so I’m not going to be agreeing with you on your first point.
Secondly, I’m not talking about different versions of TV. I’m talking about TV, as in not the internet or YouTube or Netflix. Do people still watch television, like the DIY channel, Food Network, Speed, the Outdoor Channel, Discovery, Weather Channel, SciFi, ESPN, etc... Do people still have Dish Network and Direct TV in their homes? Or is television dead? (Note: I know some of these channels are probably either gone or have changed names, but that’s what they were last time I watched TV).
