    Default 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.
