is watching televison becoming a bore?
« on: Sep 15, 2020, 10:19:04 AM »
with endless repeats is it worth having a television as it seems its all about the coronavirus, Donald trump or Megan and harry, 


have you any views, regarding the news shown on the box today,.

Very little we watch these days. The Scottish News at 6pm and Merlin every day. Even Merlin's a repeat but I did enjoy it first time round.

It certainly is boring at the moment .. I do have Netflix but I have never watched it..
 I have Catch-up and there is much to watch that I missed  first time aound.. I find other things to be getting on with..
but, I must admit, even that is becoming boring.. The good weather has helped..


Bake-off starts next week.. Looking forward to that.

It's months since I watched a live TV programme other than the second 20-20 last month, but I do watch a fair amount of You Tube and Netflix

Time to unplug your aerial and cancel your BBC donation then.

I'm tempted, but I do have a large collection of DVDs recorded off air one of whihc I will trot out and watch (sometimes for the umpteenth time!) so my reading is that requires me to have a licence

We watched the first episode of Des last night.  Bio of Denis Nilsen. David Tennant is a dead ringer.

I checked. If you record TV programmes to be watched later, you must have a licence - it is stated quite clearly, unfortunately!

I watch Netflix and have a NowTV package. Apart from that I watch little live TV - mostly catchup.

As I spend biggest part of my night laid on the settee I can always find something to watch with out being bored....I just scroll through all the channels until I came to something I fancy watching. ;D ;D


I also have an Amazon Firestick to fall back on. ;D ;D

That Firestick is a good thing, isn't it? I have a smart TV in the big lounge but only a 'dumb' one in the small lounge - which I found I could effectively make 'smart' for - from memory £39- with a Firestick? Jolly good value for money

It is a good thing Mike, I have had more than my moneys worth out of it or I should say my son and his family as it was them that bought it for me one Christmas. ;D ;D
