In my case, I have ended up watching more and less TV at the same time. I don't even turn on my TV anymore, I flip on TIVO to see what I have on queue.Originally Posted by halcyon
A 1 hour show has 20 minutes of commercials ... therefore I can watch 3 - 1 hour showes in 2 hours.
I don't linger and watch part of the next show. Time saved.
Also, I don't miss what somebody said, I play it back. If I can't figure it out by sound, I use the closed caption. I don't have to be home by 8:00 PM to watch [insert whatever is on at 8:00 PM, I wouldn't know anymore].
The only thing I watch "live" anymore is sporting events, and I don't always watch them live.
I have a 40 minute commute to work. I'd rather give up my car than my TIVO.
