Does anyone else use their MacBook Pro as their primary Television?

    I recently bought a 2019 15” base model MacBook Pro primarily for the bigger screen. I had been using a late 2013 rMBP until now.

    Little did I know this computer would not only become my primary computing device, but also my primary TV.

    Right now I’m watching CNN and it’s great. It looks better than my TV tbh.

    Apple's doing awesome things with their screens and choosing the right suppliers. I'm pumped to see the micro led screens when they come out tbh

    I don't, but my best friend does. iTunes, Netflix, Stan, Freeview... all you need... even Foxtel if you have it.

    Basically the same thing lol in the sense it’s an Apple screen

    I’m pretty much done watching CNN for tonight but it was great. That screen is really something.

    I’m gonna say something that some people might now like,

    But we are truly lucky to enjoy such great products.

    That 15” screen with True Tone, those brilliant speakers, it’s an experience seeing a debate or whatever you want on this device.

    I pretty much watch anything on my phone or MBP these days. Doesn’t bother me, glossy screen, nice color accuracy, mobile, can listen and then watch for specific parts I wanna see, I find it enjoyable. I’m even a bit of a cinema nerd and videophile but i’ve just learned to go with the flow these days so i’ll accept my new smaller mobile screen overlords:)

    I watch on my MBP hooked up to 27 inch 4k or 25 inch QHD external monitors. Sometimes I watch on the laptop display and sometimes I watch on my iPad Mini.

    I don't watch TV anymore... Only Netflix, Hulu, HBO and so on on... However I do see that content most regularly on the Macbook than the TV itself
