Does Netflix count as "watching tv"?
If you are watching it on a TV, how would it not be? Maybe not if you are watching it on a computer or mobile device that isn't a television.
One hundred percent. The entertainment is conveniently in a place where you pay cheap cash for good quality shows and movies.
Watching anything on TV or devices streaming said shows/movies counts as watching tv. Even when on the elliptical.
If you watch on a television then you are watching television.
Don't watch Netflix on my tv... so...
Your butt is sitting down and your rotting your brain; watching tv.
If you're watching on your TV set, do you think. You're at the movies? Yes
Don't watch Netflix on my tv.
If I watch it on the tablet or laptop I say I'm watching Netflix, if I'm watching it on the tv I say I'm watching tv
Shows like OitNB that are made specifically for Netflix are still called tv shows. Case closed
Id say no.
Sure, why not.
I'd say yes.
The square on the wall is a TV. Case closed!
But I only watch Netflix on my iPad, laptop & formerly on my iPod Touch... not that square (actually it's a rectangle) thing. 😉
If it's on a TV, then yes.
What is it if one *doesn't* watch it on a tv, only on a device or laptop? It isn't "aired" on broadcast or cable access, only Internet. Is it *technically* "tv"?
Then I'd say I'm watching a movie or a show.
If not, what are we supposed to call it instead?
Fair enough. What if it's AmazonPrime or Hulu? Hasn't anyone come up with a singular noun or verb for "it isn't 'tv' but I'm watching it as though it were"? It's not *that* new is it?
