Was wondering...how large is your hot water heater that you can shower long enough to watch tv?

Had one in a room in India. - Movies were so bad, I didn't stay in there long. Could not see any sense in it, but the telephone did make sense.

Went to the bar to watch soccer, which was much better.

Hot tub I can see....
Shower though? I dont think you would really be able to see it with all the soap, shampoo and steam from the shower. Most people shower for a few minutes at most so I cant see it really being worth the trouble.
Just my 2c.

I think the commercials (length of) in a half hour show would put a strain on your water heater. With a "water saver" showerhead (2-1/2 gallons per minute) you would use about 25 gallons during the ads.

Maybe he wants to watch the morning news for a traffic report when showering. I kind of thinks its a great ideal.

If it was me, I would just enjoy the peace and quiet of a good shower.
Not many private places it the world as it is. Man, forget the TV

Well, for a bath I could see maybe...only problem I see is if you put the TV at "bath level", you wont be able to see it too well at "shower level"...especially if its an LCD with a narrow viewing angle. Just something to think about.
