Without sports it’s much easier. Some exceptions would need to be stated because if you walk into a restaurant/bar/hotel almost anywhere they have TV’s on. Hard to avoid some of those situations. Probably between $1,000-2,000 per month.

Just broadcast television? I could do that easily. No movies? It would have to be a lot. No sports? You better be giving me life-changing-I-never-have-to-work-again money.

I get a lot people don’t need or watch TV at all but to sign up to be required to not watch any TV for a year for absolutely nothing?

Jkjk but let’s say $200/month for me.

Now it would be more interesting if you included streaming and DVDs/video files.

One Dollar and two zero nine cents!

I find myself not watching much TV although I have at least 5 TV's in my house.

I'd only take payment in poker chips..
Honestly though, other than watching DVDs (usually just 1 a night) I dont watch enough TV to even care lol we watch wicked tuna on sundays but even that I dont need it. I can watch dirt cars in person, and I'd rather be playing poker or be outside than watching TV anyway.

Movies count? What about youtube?
This is a great question, let's assume cable/streaming platforms.

If youtube is included (not youtube TV) idk that I have a price. Youtube has become my preferred viewing network, including all the streaming platforms.

I don't watch any network or cable tv and haven't for several years since I cut the cord. Have an HD Antenna for nfl but last couple seasons didn't even watch much of that. I might stream one or two shows per year on Netflix or HBO.

Honestly my number would be really low.

Does this work well for you? I tried an antenna (not sure if it was an HD Antenna) a couple years back, and it wasn’t so great so I never cut the cord.

Between the HD antenna and the NFL mobile app (Verizon Wireless FTW), maybe I should revisit cutting the cord.
