I've been watching my TV shows on the PC as well for the last few years now. I miss the big TV though so I'm considering buying one and hooking it up with the PC. Or maybe I'll just buy a big PC monitor as my second screen.

Mostly on my Mac. Location: in bed. I make an exception for Westworld though, my TV + Bose surround system is essential.

Quite a few different ways. I have DirecTV and use their On Demand feature and my DVR quite a bit, especially for TV shows that are hard to find online (Chopped, Cooks v Cons, etc). I also watch a decent amount of Netflix, VRV (primarily Cartoon Hangover, Funimation, Crunchyroll, and VRV Selects), and I have Amazon Prime, but I don't use it often because I can't chromecast it to the bedroom TV.

I also rip/download a decent number of discs/shows/movies and cast them with Plex or watch them on my PC monitor.

As for screens, I have a 32" 720p screen in the bedroom, a 29" 720p screen in my office, and a 55" 1080p screen in the living room here in the basement. That one is pretty much used for sports/esports/fights, movies, and the more theatrical side of television/anime.

I don’t have cable, but I do go to a friend’s house once a week and watch TWD. We have netflix but weeks could go by without watching anything. I do stream a few minutes of news and other stuff on youtube, etc. on most days. It’s hard to answer this question because I’m not sure what things to include as ‘watching tv’.

Mostly through Kodi (downloaded on a NAS). I have a couple of Kodi installations, some on Raspberry Pi, some on Windows. The Raspberry PIs are connected to TVs, the Windows ones to regular monitors, one of the Kodi installations is on a Laptop.

Screen sizes are ranging from a beamer (=wallsized) down to 24 inch monitors.

Funny thing, I usually watch TV shows on my PC, and play videogames on my TV
