Binge Interrupted: Psychological Momentum Facilitates Binge Watching By Distorting Time Perceptions

Five studies demonstrate an antecedent of binge-watching. People are more likely to watch an additional similar show (vs. switch to a different show/task) after watching similar shows without interruptions. We propose that a lack of interruptions while viewing related content facilitates binging of similar videos by distorting perceptions of time.
