“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 Netflix in 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 IT HERE) 


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… goodbye!
