Yes I can absolutely live without TV for a week because being a student I have to put a lot of time into studying and in the remaining time I can use my phone or whether I choose to go out for a walk to relax my mind or I choose to play with my friends, sometimes outdoor games and sometimes indoor. For me it does not affect that much but may be for the aged people or housewives who do their time pass by watching TV.
Yes I can live without T.V as I am not hooked to any serials in particular.In the past there were no other entertainment except T.V so life revolved around the Idiot Box as it was called in those times.But I would like to add that the quality of serials in the 80's or 90's were very good to what you see on television now.
After the arrival of internet life has changed completely. There are many other ways you can pass the time instead of watching television. You can see movies,songs and even live T.V on the mobile or computer.Now everything is online.People have many other options like the You-tube ,Watsapp and social networking sites like Instagram and Facebook have people hooked on to their mobiles.All are now addicted to the mobile including kids which has its disadvantages too.
