TODAY WE FOUND out that five per cent of people in Ireland don’t have a telly, while 18 per cent of Journal.ie readers said they don’t have a set in their house.

Twenty-five per cent of you said you could definitely live without the demon box.

3. Do you feel left out during the Love/Hate and Downton Abbey conversations?

4. Do you want to come over and watch it in my house?

5. Do you not have a TV just so you can tell people you don’t have a TV?

This is reserved for the really smug ones. You know the ones we mean. The ones who shrug and say “oh I barely even know what a TV is“.
