I like watching films and wildlife programmes.

Nowadays I prefer to watch videos on youtube or netflix series because these platform give me the possibility that watching when I have free time.
Anyway, the best thing on TV is the live news, and the worst is sports programme, especially football programme. Men and women can spend all they watching people talking about old matches or arguing a play.

I like watch news and movies on tv. It's essencia have a tv at home because this still is an entertainment program.

i'd prefer to watch some kids english movies ,documentries,and some english and arabic series .Also I hate watching reality show and sports.

Hello everyone!!! I think I haven't any TV program I like best. Because I like everything if it is good. BYE!!!!

The best thing for me on TV is News and films.
To me TV programmes are of different types with specific objective information, as such its elither suits viewers' or not.
Yes. I has.

I criticize the use of laugh tracks.

I don’t watch TV, but if I watch I prefer films on BBC, Discovery channel or National Geographic. Because there are a lot of interesting programs in this channel. For example, about space, wild, geniuses. You can be a versatile man. I don’t like news. Because I don’t hear something positive. We only hear global problems.

I think that TVs are no longer used, we almost watch Youtube more than programs on TV. But, I prefer documentaries programs and I hate so much the news.

i prefer watch on tv sports programs, it's intresting, it's ok i spend 5 hours or more to watch matchs. i don't like watch anmals programs, it's boring.
