    He always watches TV.

    Hi there!

    I'd like to ask native speakers of English.

    Is it OK to say, "My brother doesn't study at home. He always watches TV"?

    Or should I say,"My brother doesn't study at home. He is always watching TV"?

    Thank you!

    In this situation, the second is the one you want.
