Mine is between three and four years old and I kind of hate it but it cost ÂŁ300, it works, it fits in the corner, and I begrudge spending more than that on something I barely use.

Mine, which is currently in a box, is about 2 years old.

Got a big ol’ flat telly about five or six years ago. Chromecast keeps it young for all yer streaming stuff and Spotify and that.

Think I bought it around xmas 2012. Though it wasnt used between April 2014 and September 2017 due to having small room/flats that it wouldn’t really fit in.

I stream via a HDMI lead from my laptop.

This is one of the things I hate about my telly - it’s “smart” but in practice only Netflix works on it so I’ve got a Roku stick for all the other things.


As long as I can watch Food Network I’m easy


Did I make it in time?!?!


My mum RENTED a telly until about 1997. The number of of TVs she could have bought with what she spent. Madness.


The tv’s parents still do, I think. Or only stopped in the last year.

I initially thought it was between 2 and 3 years old. But I just checked the email from Richer Sounds and it was purchased on the 28th December 2016. Seems like yesterday, how time flies.

I do have another old tele which my parents were going to get rid off, that’s about 15 years old. It doesn’t get used.

Got mine when I moved into this flat just over 10 years ago, along with a PS3 which I use for Netflix and dvds and Blu rays (doesn’t get used for gaming anymore)

Would like a new one cos it would mean a bigger screen for the same space on the wall but it just keeps on going, it was about £400 from richer sounds I think, an LG. The remote died in a battery leak a few years ago but i don’t really need that as sound is all going through the hi fi and all tv is app based coming from other devices

My parents did this, too. In fairness I think TVs were more expensive to buy back then.
