13-H: the Consumption of Digital Live Content: How Live Streaming Enhances Interest in Uninteresting Content

Using an online video platform, we propose and find that compared to prerecorded content, live streamed content increases consumers’ intention to join in on uninteresting activities because live experiences make mundane activities feel more social.
