A REPORT FROM the Communications Regulator (ComReg) has shown that 95 per cent of people in Ireland still own a television.

Over half of the 1500 people surveyed have Sky for a TV service, 29 per cent use UPC and 9 per cent use Saorview.

Though mobile phones are the most commonly used telecommunications services at 97 per cent, the telly box still appears to be popular in Irish households.

However with the increase in the use of streaming websites and services like Netflix, many people are turning away from their televisions and watching their favourite shows and movies on computers.

So we want to know: Could you live without your TV?

Poll Results:

I could, but only temporarily (1271)
Yes, definitely (1118)
No (1075)
I don't own a television (822)
