Does Netflix count as TV time?

Marketing people say we watch an average of 272 minutes of TV each day. I spend about that many minutes each day watching Netflix DVDs. Do you include watching DVDs from Netflix when you talk about "watching TV", or do you consider DVDs different from TV?


  1. Well, I don't consider watching TiVo to be watching "TV" either, so I guess I'm getting one of the worst return-on-investments you could imagine on my home theater. :-D

  2. no netflix time cannot be compared to tv time. netflix time is deliberate and of a much better quality than say watching a rerun of seinfeld.

  3. Come on people, it's the same thing.

    Though watching a quality Netflix movie might be of greater cultural value, you're still sitting in front of the boob tube.
