As above, we dont have a "TV", we have a PC recording stuff it's been told to and then beamed down to a large monitor in a place we want to watch stuff.
We skip adverts, and dont surf the channels and sit in front of something just because it's on. If there's nothing in the recorded tv folder, we dont bother watching anything.
We still have a tv licence more as a moral choice since we listen to BBC radio all the time and now and then we might watch live sport, but the rest of the time we are watching time-slipped tv (no need for a licence)
7 years ago BC (before children) we had no tv and no tv tuner in the PC. That was for about two years and didnt really miss it too much, but there's no need to be self-flagellating about it when it makes more sense to use a combination of technology and self control to get your time back.
