I don't have TV, so I need to go somewhere and watch it from time to time to get a good dose of Leftist propaganda or else I begin to have dangerous thoughts.

Also, I miss giggling at commercials that warn about "4 hour erections".

Damn... I need to go watch some now...

The Model-M is more plasticy than a standard metal mounting-plate Cherry MX Brown TKL keyboard.

About the only over-the-air television I still watch is The Dr. Phil Show and The Bachelor(ette), mainly because they are easy to watch with my wife when we don't want to use our brains. It is also fun to make fun of the contestants (as my wife calls them).

As a side note, The Dr. Phil Show makes all of the guests use Apple laptops for all the B-roll footage in which the guests are looking at something online or snooping. Maybe that is part of their problem.

Nah, Finnish TV sucks 90% of the time unless they manage to show some good movie by accident. Netflix, Viaplay, and HBO Nordic do the job. I need to cancel my DigiTV subscription. I guess that is similar to "cable" in USA.

I don't have a TV… can't watch it.

Used to watch lots of ice hockey, but gave it up for mainly ethical reasons similar to those pointed out in this interview (or the respective book).

I still do listen to TV/radio interviews (mainly politics or science), though, except online.

I still find the Swedish public service channels to be quite good, the best TV channels over here. They show quite a lot British drama and documentaries, and some of the best shows from HBO -- only about a year later.
When it was on, they used to show a season of Game of Thrones timed so that the last episode of a season was aired precisely a week before the next season premiered on HBO.
Practically everything is also available for online streaming for a limited time from the air-date, only region-locked by IP address. And there are no ads on public service channels or on the web site!
The TV company gets its income from a kind of "TV tax", which is not called a tax, but it is ... which has caused many people I know to not buy a new one when their old one failed.

So, yes, I do watch TV. I have never had any streaming subscription for Netflix or HBO or whatever.
I once worked at a streaming service where the developers saved its ass from its management over and over again, and I suppose that I might have a bit of an aversion for them.
I might watch at least as much Youtube as TV though.

Yes.. but I hurd in Finland,  no-phat-chix
Finland does not have Hurd. Finland has Linux. :rolleyes:

Nope.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

If being stuck in a perpetual loop of rewatching old tv shows counts, then yes but aside from using it as some white noise everything else is either online or legally downloaded shows/series through legitimate download sites

Real big fan of pre-Netflix Arrested Development.
The new Arrested Development is kinda lacking in my opinion.

They're definitely addressing the time it's been off the air but it's pretty rough going so far. I hope it picks back up before Season 5.

I watched The Orville and the latest season of Silicon Valley recently. Both excellent.

I'm trying to watch The Leftovers at the moment but keep switching it off because after 2 hours it hasn't really gotten going. I believe it a slow burner, and its gotten rave reviews most places, so I'll get over that hump eventually.

When Better Call Saul and Glow come back I'll probably watch those.

My folks have Sky Atlantic which comes with most of the HBO stuff. You can watch it on demand too. Just tend to watch stuff on my computer more often than not. My office chair is more comfortable than the living room ones.

I used to watch 4 or 5 movies a week but my attention span for them recently has gone to pot. I watch more Youtube and Twitch than anything these days.

I want to shout out for news on Teletext on Swedish public service TV.
Each article is concise and to the point. There are no ads whatsoever and the articles are not difficult to browse: just type a number or press forward/back. Beauty in simplicity.

Most countries and channels that used to have teletext have discontinued their services. What a shame.
Back in its heyday, browsing was slow because the bandwidth was so low (only a couple of bytes in each vertical blank) but every TV set since the mid-1990's have stored all pages in memory caches thus working around that limit.
