    I would say it is correct, though I would find it a little more natural to say "ver televisión" without the article. But your sentence is grammatically correct.

    If you want to be imperative with "haces tu cama" then you should use: "haz tu cama". If you want it as a condition, it's right that way. And as Marios says, you can say "podemos ver la televisión" or "podemos ver televisión"

    A mi me queda mejor: Miguel, si haces tu cama, luego podremos ver la television. De la manera que has dicho tú me suena raro

    La forma que has empleado no es correcta o, resulta incompleta.
    Hay muchas formas de decirlo correctamente; la elección dependerá de la intención:
    "Miguel, si haces tu cama podrás ver la televisión"
    "Miguel, haz tu cama y luego podrás ver la televisión"
    "Miguel, o haces tu cama o luego no ves la televisión"
    "Miguel, haz tu cama si quieres ver la televisión".
    La forma que has utilizado sólo es comprensible si no se usa imperativamente sino como una relación de hechos :Miguel, haces tu cama, luego vemos la televisión Y a las diez nos vamos a la cama" , o "Miguel, haces tu cama Y luego vemos la televisión". (al ser una relación la ultima oración debe unirse con la conjunción "Y", no con coma.
    Espero haberte ayudado

    First of all, say that in daily use we quite often switch "televisión" and "tele", especially talking with children.


    As you have done, we can construct the sentence using the present simple (to me, it sounds more natural with the conjunction "and" that with a comma):

    • Miguel, haces tu cama y luego podemos ver la television (Miguel, you make your bed and then we can watch television).
    _________

    We can construct the sentence using the imperative form:

    • Miguel, haz tu cama y luego podemos ver la televisión (Miguel, make your bed and then we can watch television).
    _________

    We can also construct the sentence using a conditional:

    • Miguel, si haces tu cama, luego podremos ver la television (Miguel, if you make your bed, then we can watch television).
    _________

    There is other way that would sound natural too, as a condition:

    • Si quieres que veamos la television, antes tienes que hacer tu cama (If you want us to see the television, first you have to make your bed).
    _________

    Or this, more conclusive:

    • Miguel o haces tu cama o luego no vemos la televisión (Miguel, or you make your bed, or then we don't watch TV).
    _________


    I sincerely hope this helps.

    "Miguel, haces tu cama y luego podemos ver la television." or "Miguel, haces tu cama y luego veremos/vamos a ver la television." are correct.
