Just out of interest.

Mine is about 3 hours per night during the week and on a Sunday consisting of the news minus the ads and sport plus two 45 minute downloaded/streamed shows and if I still have time before my bedtime (I'm very anal about routine) a 25 minute comedy. 

Saturday night is usually just news and a movie so maybe 3.5 hours. 

Total for the week is approximately 22 hours.






When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Traditional TV - 0 hours a week. We don't have freeview or sky.

Netflix/Downloaded tv - typically one 45minute show a night. Sometimes 2 depending on the day of the week and what was just released.

Its variable - there's the TV I watch, and the rest of the time that I'm in the room with the TV on because other family members are watching stuff of no interest to me. And in between that is the stuff I watch with one eye while on my lappie or phone or book or whatever.
For myself, maybe an hour or two a day.

To me TV is TV whether its broadcast, streamed or torrent. 

I don't watch anything live and only have freeview as I like to watch the news while I have my dinner. If TVNZ Ondemand could stream the news at the same time as the live broadcast I would probably drop it and go all steamed\torrent.

I made the mistake of watching House on Netflix Monday night from 9pm till 2am... Wasn't very happy on Tuesday morning.

Usually watch one or two 45 minutes TV episodes in the evening.

We don't have a TV, and probably watch one 45 minute show on the laptop every other evening.

It's constantly in my face at work (obviously) :) so Mon-Fri during office hours.. a lot..

At night usually 4 to 5 hours.. Weekends, probably about the same.

I have square eyes and tinnitus.  There is no hope.

Probably average just under an hour a night. 1-2 hours on Saturday and Sunday, and less (sometimes nothing at all) on weeknights.

I watch almost nothing live except sport. Particularly anything FTA, as the ad breaks are just too annoying. Plus, as well as skipping ads, it's nice to be able to hit pause if the phone rings, as well as zip through the boring bits etc.

I watch Campbell Live every night, along with some of 3News depending on how much time I have available. I also watch The Nation on Sunday mornings and a bit of other stuff here and there. Maybe an average of 1.5 hours a night?
