The Impact of Previews on the Enjoyment of Multicomponent Multimedia Experiences

Six studies investigate how previews can have unintended downstream consequences for the enjoyment of extended multimedia experiences.

Thus, the common strategy of narrowly highlighting a focal component of the experience backfires, while broader previews avoid this pitfall.
