Brought to You Live”: on the Consumption Experience of Live Social Media Streams

Across five studies, we find that consumers enjoy the exact same experience more when watching it live than prerecorded. This effect is driven by the feeling of social connection from simultaneous viewing, and operates above and beyond indeterminacy. Moreover, consumers choose to continue watching live content longer than prerecorded content.
