Binge-watching is for kids, too

1 Comment

Everyone is well aware of how much late-night binge-watching has affected our television viewing habits, but Brian Stelter is pointing out in the New York Times that it’s popular for kids, too. Disney is capitalizing on the binge-watching trend by releasing some series early before they hit live TV, a possible boon for kid loyalty in the digital era. What’s more, kids often watch the same one episode over and over. Is it true? Just ask my three-year-old niece: she has demanded to watch the Alice in Wonderland episode of PBS show Super Why every day for the past two weeks.

Just as Netflix has changed TV watching for me (and my wife), there’s no doubt it’s having an impact on kids too. In fact, the always-available and on-demand functionality of Netflix is all my two-year-old son has ever known – are the cable companies ready for an audience like that?

P.S. My son is in love with an episode of Justin Time; we watch the “Tower of Justin” religiously.
