“Let TV audiences binge” Do you know what Binge-watching is?
You may probably not heard of BINGE-WATCHING before, but I am certainly that you have – at least
once – binge-watched something.
In fact, I am doing it right now. I am watching
Breaking Bad for the third time. No, no. it is not the third, but the fourth
one. no… what I meant was “I’m watching the fourth season for the third time”. Well,
is it? Sorry… it is probably because I have been watching this single
television show for longer time spans than usual. I mean, I have watching Breaking
Bad in one sitting – in a row. One, two, three… six, seven episodes and I don’t
feel like stopping it soon!
So, that’s exactly what it is. BINGE-WATCHING means:
“to watch (multiple videos, episodes of a TV show, etc.) in one sitting
or over a short period of time”
According to a survey conducted by Netflixin
February 2014, 73% of people define binge-watching as "watching between
2-6 episodes of the same TV show in one sitting." (READ THE SURVEY HERE)
The website Wikipedia states that:
The idea of assembling
several consecutive episodes of a television series in order and watching them
in rapid succession originated with the marathon, in which the television
stations themselves programmed several hours' worth of reruns of a single
series. This practice began in the 1980s and is still popular among
subscription television outlets in the 2010s.
The usage of the word
"binge-watch" can be traced as far back as the late 1990s, when it
was used by circles of television fandoms. It has consisted of watching several
episodes of a particular show in a row via DVD sets.
Actor Kevin Spacey once said “Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it
in, at a reasonable price, and they’ll more likely pay for it rather than steal
it. Well, some will still steal it, but I believe this new model can take a
bite out of piracy,” (READ
You can binge-watch the
entire season with this set.
We binge-watched two seasons of the show in two days.
I felt like
hell all day because, I was up till 4:00 binge-watching
season 2 of "Dexter".
It is important to state that ‘Binge-watching’ is not the only term to describe new
media-consumption habits. That’s right you can also use ‘power-streaming’, ‘marathoning’,
or watching a show marathon-style.
My question is Do you guys think the word binge-watch
is here to stay?
That’s all for today. I have to watch the next episode…
Ellen talked about the newest trend of WATCHING AN
ENTIRE SEASON OF A SHOW IN ONE SITTING. Watch it here:
