The tv is often on for more than 3 hours, but I'm often on the internet or doing other stuff at the same time. Sadly, the tv goes on pretty much as the first thing when I come in and then is on in the back ground for most of the other stuff.
The figure I'm after here is how many hours the TV is watched in a day by anyone in the household. So it's quite possible, though pretty unlikely, that if someone works shifts, the TV in their house is watched for 24 hours.
Some Folk watch Videos off the internet ( You tube) Or Laptops/ Desktops with tuners and may not consider that TV
My TVs at home ( all 4 of them ) are on because children will not be persuaded not to watch but Until recently I didnt watch TV at all for almost 2 months ( I mean sit down to actually watch) myself
Some folk with High end AV kit just watch films ...
To not have a TV is odd.., IMHO and I get some folk I see in the course of work who say they dont own one ( Usually live alone if young ), or are in thier 60sor older and never had the urge
