To be honest you might be better suited to find a monitor with a more main stream aspect ratio (1080p) if you want to watch TV. This monitor uses 2560 x 1080 (21:9) and you will find that most movies and TV will end up playing with black bars at either side or being stretched. Also this monitor will look rather small because of its ultra wide screen. The ultra wide screen is more beneficial if you want to have a couple of documents open side by side or want to play games with a more panoramic view. I'd have a look and see if there are any reviews on You Tube so you can make a more informed decision.
