Poll: How Do You Watch?

TV shows, movies, the news. We know you like to watch. But how do you watch? More people than ever are watching “TV” exclusively on their computers, tablets/iPads, and even smartphones. Others would never dream of giving up their traditional TVs. Where do you stand (or sit?) on this TV-watching question? Click as many options on our poll as apply. We’ll be back with some thoughts on the results in early January.

    Broadcast shows on television (antenna), cable shows on my laptop.

      Interesting distinction, Audrey! And a real antenna? Wow!

    I have an antenna (rabbit ears) to watch broadcast shows (no cable — Hooray!!!), although PBS is just about the only TV I watch live. Everything else streaming (Hulu etc) or via iTunes — watched on TV screen thanks to cable connecting laptop to TV.

      Wow, sorrykb, real rabbit ears? You should meet Audrey! ;) Sounds like a great setup you have. We’re happy you watch PBS live. You clearly have excellent taste.

    The survey misses the point. There is “Television”, the medium as we’ve known it since the 1940s, and “the TV”, the screen that allows us to watch video be it part of a computer, laptop, tablet, or a 53″ flat screen LED, LCD, Plasma, or whatever. I prefer to watch video on the latter. It is where the video originates that has changed drastically. Much of it comes from sources other than broadcast or cable stations. I watch Hulu, YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo, any number of videos I have in my laptop, or on a flashdrive, etc. This abundance of sources and media is what is altering what we have come to think of as “television”. I rather call it “Film & Video” and not “Film & Television” for the “T” word is too confining.

    what a strangely-worded survey…
