Transmedia Consumption Experiences (Tce): Patching As a Narrative Consumption Practice

Transmedia storytelling is the systematic dispersal of narrative elements across multiple media to create unified and coordinated consumer experiences. We introduce transmedia to consumer research by exploring how consumers engage with interrelated cross-media marketing narratives. The results offer implications for understanding consumption in a complex, media-driven, and social-media socialized world.
