Whether you have a laptop or desktop, watching shows on a computer is a cozy, intimate affair. You can multitask by opening various windows up at once as you stream, and laptops are portable items that allow for you to watch content anytime, anywhere. That’s way better than watching something on your phone—the screen is bigger, and you can ignore annoying text messages more easily.

You also technically have more of a streaming selection when you’re on your computer. Type anything on Google search and it’s bound to pop up on one site or another. Just be wary of whatever viruses that may be lurking within those URLs.

Due to the size and placement of computers, sometimes it’s harder to watch something in a group. With a TV, you have the option of watching both alone or with a few friends. However, there’s something undeniably glorious about coming home after a long week and flipping on the boob tube for a solo relax-and-snack session.

Watching a TV has a traditional value that computers lack; sitting directly in front of them or keeping them on as white noise in the background is a comforting pastime that's been around for decades. Skimming through each channel also allows for you to discover shows you may not have given a chance online. Just be sure you’re not disturbing your roommates during those late-night binges.
