I  happen  to  hold the opposite view. I even gave away my TV  last  year.

Why  not  buy  a gigantic monitor (or an array thereof) to  get  the  same
experience,  only with denser pixels and the ability to multitask (e.g. TV
on  one  side,  controls or subtitles (impractical) on the  other),  among
other     advantages.     Televisions    are    like    computers     (not
technically-speaking) that have been packages to become a very restrictive

Best wishes,
