The busy routine, the never-ending work hours and coming home totally drained after a hectic day - don’t we all find this relatable? We have buried our heads so deeply in work that taking out time to watch a couple of TV shows, seems like an idea impossible. Maybe, this is the reason why there has been a rise in the trend of ‘binge-watching’. Did you know? According to a survey held in October 2019 in the United States, around 50% of the adults under 45 said they watched all the episodes of a TV season, using an online streaming service, and that too in a single sitting. This confirms our notion that the trend of binge-watching has been increasing rapidly among Americans and our prediction says in the coming years, it will continue to become more widespread.
The idea of ‘binging’ is not a new one; in fact, it is believed this term surfaced back in the 1900s when World War 1 was very much the hype. And it is said back in those days when soldiers used their free time to eat and drink, they did so in excess, and referred to it as ‘binging’. So, the term ‘binge’ was originally associated with eating and drinking. With the passage of time, its modern variant i.e. binge-watching originated - in around 2003 - and later in 2012, Netflix played a massive role in giving it a completely new meaning.
Seeing a rise in the binge-watching trend, cable service providers in the USA found a niche wherein they could provide subscribers the option to watch programming of whichever genre they wanted, and that too on their own timeline. So they started to roll out their own video libraries that consumers could access as part of their subscription. Now, almost every TV service provider active in the United States offers the Video On Demand feature with their cable TV, satellite TV or IPTV packages. Most are good, but there is only one that’s best enough to give all the other ‘best VOD service claimants’ a tough run for their money. Charter Spectrum™ is known to provide the most high-definition video content in its programming offers and via its VOD service thus setting itself a level apart from competitors.
To make binge-watching tremendously convenient, Spectrum provides Video On Demand service with all cable TV plans and packages on offer. Users can get access to thousands of On Demand choices for as low as $44.99/mo. while the price remains locked for an entire year – quite a value for money!
