Do We Watch Too Much TV?


The average person spends around 19 hours a week watching TV, while that might not sound like too much but it works out to be nearly 1000 hours a year. That pretty much means watching TV is one of everyone’s favourite pastimes. Do you think people are watching too much TV? How many hours do you spend watching TV LiveTribers?

    I made a conscious choice not to have a TV.

    I admit I love watching tv, but very selectively. Nearly all my tv time during this Covid19 is with SBS World Movies (one to three movies per day), it's my cinema "ersatz" free to air quality movies with no US junk flooded with constant syrupy or overdramatic music telling you all the time what to feel.

    I have reduced my capacity quite a bit. No more than two hours daily.

    Having the TV on while I do housework, cooking. washing and ironing for a back ground, apart from being entaining it keeps me informed but not sitting and watching all day.

    I gave up being brainwashed by mainstream media propaganda machines decades ago. People should get their info from the actual unbiased sources - creditable freelance journalists on the ground who don't start with an agenda. Make sure you know what every journalist has previously reported on, the position they took on it & who they work for.

    19 hours isn't much , it depends on what you are watching . Don't forget it was the only medium of information , after newspapers , telex , telegraph and before PC's , mobiles , pads , pods , watches etc. Also one can watch more on tv , rather than free to air . I guess we live in an age of information , and the more you watch the more informed you are , as we get to voice our opinions instead of being dictated to !
