Does Your TV Have an off Switch?

Other

Normally I only watch on TV what I plan to watch then it gets turned off. The other day the weather was miserable and I pretty much wasted the whole day channel surfing and half watching some absolute rubbish and finding a couple of gems.

Are you selective in your viewing or is the TV on no matter what is showing?

Our TV has an automatic switch and can be set up after how long time we want it to switch the TV off.

We have Netflix, so I do not watch the normal channels much, just on demand TV and movies and cooking shows....and the new series Dynasties

Having just read the title I came here expecting it to be a literal question about the on/off switch. Now.....I am sure this is me and I am being thick, but I have 4 TVs in my house and every single one is on standby with the red light glowing. I have searched over every tele, held the standby button down for ages, tried every which way to actually turn the TV off but it won't have it. I am told you can save a lot of money each year by turning TVs off standby but how on earth do you do it? Surely it is not in the interest of the TV companies, the environment or anyone except the energy providers for the on/off button not to be easy to find/operate? In fact the latter are the only ones making from this!!!!

I admit my tv is on standby ... but I only have one. Lynnibis you should feel ashamed. lol. I just meant do you turn the tv off and read or something if there is nothing worth watching on or is it sometimes just background noise.

Jamala ha ha, yes 4 tv's for one person is a bit much. One in kitchen/diner, one in lounge (larger screen with sky), one in bedroom and final one in office. To answer your original query, I do tend to have it on from 6 to bedtime but I often go to bed around 10 as I am an avid reader and I tend to turn light out a little before 12. My job means I am in and out throughout the day and if I am in I do tend to watch gmb and this morning. I love getting into a good series and also have netflix, Amazon and sky box sets! I have often said on here my favourites.......Vikings, GOT, Outlander, Designated Survivor, Peaky Blinders, Line of Duty, Strike Back, 24, The Borgias, The Last Kingdom and currently Condor is really good. I could go on and on lol, think my job should have been tv/film reviewer 😆

My TV has an off switch but it's just really a standby switch since the red LED light is still on. Is this what you mean?

Sorry I just meant do you turn it on and watch whatever's on whether you are interested in it or not. Or if there is nothing interesting on do you turn the tv off and do something else.

Yeah, it's either in the rear or on the side. It also eventually turns itself off because I've not disabled that feature.

With iPlayer, Amazon Prime, etc I can usually find something I want to see. I rarely watch anything BBC1 or ITV1, but there is so much other content available. Normally, it's only turned off when I'm going out or going to bed 📺

I don't know about TVs, but I do wish that some people had an off switch. 🙂
