    What do you usually utilize to get your dose of television shows? Cable TV, Netflix, Hulu, perhaps something else? How often do you watch?

    I had a Netflix free trial for a short time a few years ago but it never stuck and my trial ran out without my really caring much. All I'd used it for was watching a few episodes of Sherlock before forgetting about the website quickly enough, lol. Nowadays I usually watch via streams online and, occasionally, using the TV that sits next to my computer.

    My dorm has cable, though we don't use the TV much unless we're watching football or I'm playing a video game. My phone can actually access all the shows recorded at my house though, so I'll be able to watch shows like Gotham and Whose Line is it Anyways whenever I want. XD

    I haven't had cable TV for a long time, and don't plan on getting it in the near future, so I tend to just watch my shows through Netflix.

    I kinda have Cable, it's a condensed one called Freeview that only has about twenty channels, but the channels are all fairly decent. Anything I miss (like Doctor Who) I watch on the catch up websites, and I generally watch anything that isn't on regular TV on one of two websites.

    I watch all my shows online. Catching shows on TV is quite hard for me due to the fact that I don't watch it often, and that a lot of shows aren't aired in my country from what I know.

    Netflix, Hulu, or, if I have access to a TV with channels, live. I like Netflix the most since it has a bunch of shows I want to watch or watch again + movies, but I currently can't use it since I need to watch my funds x_x Hulu I typically use to watch Jon Stewart, though I'll be using it for Gotham when I don't have access to my dorm's flatscreen TV.

    I don't watch any TV at all actually, but if I would, I would just watch it on internet. Anime kind of counts as a TV show, right? Because I do watch that, on internet xD

    Netflix..... and that's pretty much it. I feel like Netflix is the most convenient source to get movies and it's pretty cheap too. Netflix all the way.

    I don't. Simply put. Most of the time, I just watch TV on the internet through different means. But when I do watch TV, it's via a dish on my roof.

    I prefer watching TV if something I like is on. We've only got cable here, so not a whole lot of stuff to choose from. Usually I turn to Sky Go if I need stuff, using my mom's details to log-in. We don't have any of those fancy on-demand apps here, aside from a few catch-up players and Netflix. Though, proxies can grant access to Hulu, so yay.

    I'm pretty sure that I only have access to cable TV, so I'll just be laying down on couch watching that

    I don't watch TV, so I just watch YouTube videos and streams of shows I like.

    Now days, I usually just do it online. There is no easier way for me to do it, even though we have a pretty big TV downstairs. However when Doctor Who comes on, I'll always go down!

    I usually just watch stuff on Netflix and Youtube (Because turns out the slags directed towards Daytime TV are true!).
