About the only thing I ever watch on TV any more is movies/sports. I get on the computer only whenever I'm watching sports, I usually have ESPN360 on it's on tab so I don't miss much if any of the games.

And I DVR just about everything anyway, just in case.

When I watch sports, I use my computer while the commercials are on.

Since most TV hows these days are re-runs, I do watch them while surfing. But if it is a new episode of a series that I like, then I go fullscreen.

For me, in the rare instances I actually do watch television, I'm watching television while I'm surfing the web and not the other way around.

I watch TV on my computer, as I don't own an antenna, satellite, or cable subscribtion. So technically, yes.

Nope, but I don't even have a TV. And I don't need one anymore either.

I don't watch TV at all. But I like to listen to music while browsing.

Oh yeah man, I Love to plob down with my laptop and watch a movie while cruizing the web or working on some homework. However, right now My wife and I don't have cable TV (Cable is REALLY expensive...I'm not going to pay $40/month for the 'limited' package...)

Try watching TV, dealing with email and talking to your significant other all at the same time!

depends on what im watching if i pay attention to both, usually i dont pay to much attention to the tv not because i cant but because i dont usually care to much. if a hockey game is on then i pay attention to both

Usually the TV is always on either The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, or The Military Channel. Mainly for background noise. But I do like listening to Mike Rowe while he's doing his latest Dirty Job.

No, but there is never anything worth watching on TV anyway.

Yes. If the content on TV is good, I give more attention to TV. If the content on the internet is good, I give more attention to the internet. If they are both good, I use one eyeball each. :p

My wife and I have found it be a part of our daily life to surf the web while watching TV. There is nothing better then a nice quite evening with the wife and kids then everyone a family moment in front of the old tube with laptops and netbooks in hand chatting away.:popcorn:
