Not really a choice for those working from home. Need the Internet. Don't need TV.

We already went without TV for 2 years, actually, and still have no cable.

TV would be easier for me to go without for a year than Internet. Internet has a lot of TV on it anyway. But I use the Internet for a lot more things - work, keeping in contact with people, research and satisfying curiosity, shopping - all sorts of things.

I would say tv also . I was just talking about this with my sister and some friends and I told them if it was just me by myself I could do without having any tvs in my house completely . I would have internet , books and a radio . I could listen to the radio for company and read books at night in bed before falling asleep and I could also live in the mountains and be perfectly fine not seeing another human being for months at a time and they were all shocked .

Cable TV is already waaaaaaaaaaaaay past it's peak, that's why more stations like CBS is going to offer their own streaming channel. So, instead of getting hundreds of channels you'd never watch, you buy what you want, kind of ala carte.

Internet for me, even though you can stream NFL games I can't live without the Sunday Ticket.

Not really. You can do tons more with the Internet than you can with a TV.

Exactly. I can't do my banking or pay my bills on the TV. Can't book flights on the TV. Can't do my job on the TV. Can't communicate with others on the TV. I can shop on TV, but the selection is very limited.

My answer is still TV.. I basically don't have tv.

I have the physical tv I guess, but it Jusy sits there. I could watch DVDs but we don't have a DVD player. Honestly, I should sell it now that I'm thinking about it.

to gauge people's unhealthy attachment the question to ask is "can you give up internet for a year why or why not"




(does not include internet used at job)
