I have lived on my own for the past 6 years and have not owned or needed a tv in all that time! I briefly lived with roommates for all of 8 months where there was a house TV but I barely touched it! If I wanted to watch something, I would usually watch it in my room on my tablet and things haven't changed since I've been on my own. If someone had asked me to pay the depreciated or underprepared value for a tv they purchased when they couldn't AFFORD cox they lived in Manhattan on a 1st year associate salary, I would've taken a dump on their faces!

Guys, guys, guys...

Shared custody.

Accept that he won't use the tv or buy you out, and simply volunteer to come and pick up your tv and take care of it ten days a month.

You can buy it ice cream, take it to baseball games, and be the cool tv owner while your old roommates are the big, mean disciplinarians.

Are you making new roommates pay for 1/3 of the original price of the TV set? Because I think that's kind of douchey

That's just a cost you should expect to eat. Either one person buys it and owns it, or you plan for the loss. I certainly wouldn't pay the third ticket price to buy out a used TV I wouldn't have any real ownership of.

Why wouldn't one person just buy the tv so you wouldn't have to worry about this?

What the hell? I would never buy a share of a used TV. Second roommate is normal for not paying, first roommate is a sucker for doing it. See if you can con him into buying his share of the toilet or the front door; he can't claim he won't use them!!

You should buy out the extra share yourself and then install a locked cover that blocks out your 2/3rds of the 📺 and keep it locked when your not around. Or, you could install a camera with facial recognition technology above the 📺 and track how often the non-compliant roommate is in the room watching it. Then charge him an hourly rate as a supplement to his rent share.
