A study from Conviva says 22% focus on three series for binge consumption; 24% on two series, and 41% on one show. The research came from recent data on 750 binge watchers.
They can also be fickle: If those binge-watchers can’t find an episode, they will just move on to another series -- and perhaps abandoned a TV series.
The survey says 42% will start another TV series and 25% will look somewhere else for the episode; while 22% will wait for an episode to become available.
And there’s even more impatience. If there is a “shoddy experience,” 33% of those surveyed will abandon their effort after 30 seconds; with 43% leaving between one and four minutes of waiting.
Binge-watchers' favorite device is the computer. Some 60% says it’s the device they used. Regular pay TV comes in at 37% with connected (Roku, Apple TV, smart TV, for example), at 36%. The tablet is next at 32%. One in four will watch in smartphones, and the same percentage applies with those using game consoles.
