Kicked off the TV at 10pm most nights by DH so he can watch the news
67

Lulumo · 05/08/2022 22:12

So again tonight in the middle of watching a programme DH says it’s time to watch the news at 10pm. Now why can’t he just watch on it on a tablet/iPad? Why do I have to stop what I’m watching and go onto the iPad or just stop watching TV and go to bed. It’s not every night he does this but I feel like I am being bullied when he does.

Why can't you watch your show on the iPad?

You sound quite hypocritical. You had your time, he can't have his? Buy another TV if this is such a problem.

That does sound unreasonable if you're already watching something else.
What would happen if you explained you were in the middle of watching something else and asked him to watch the news using another device?

Buy a second tv or hand him the iPad with the player open for the 10 o clock news.

I think if you’ve already had the Tv for awhile , and for most evenings, he should be able to watch the news on a big screen now and again.

Are your shows live or streamed?

Have you said to him why can’t you watch it on the iPad? I just wouldn’t let my husband ‘kick me off’ the telly.

Considering Freeview has BBC news or sky news hourly. Or you can check your phone. Why should you stop what you're allready watching. Wouldn't go as far to call him a bully. But I would be very annoyed too.

He's being unreasonable. You can't change the channel mid programme.

Because she was there first.

If you want her to be fair, then she would change over half the time, not every night.

It’s 2022. He could just catch up with news on his phone or on an iPad. Interrupting someone’s program is bad form. Tell him to piss off.

Leave him. Buy another TV and take it to another house and enjoy the feeling of knowing no one will make you change whatever you are watching at 10pm.

Your DH wants to watch the news rather than some shit show like love island. It's important to keep abreast of what's going on in the world and be aware of current affairs. It's only 30 minutes. Watch your show on some other gadget.

Hand him his iPad and headphones. He’s got a bloody cheek!

Don't people in the UK have TVs in their bedroom as well as the loungeroom? It's standard where I am.
