How Binge Watching Changed The World

Has binge watching changed the way we live our lives? Netflix and cultural anthropologist Grant McCracken recently found that 61 percent of streaming television users binge on their shows and 73 percent feel positive about this kind of viewing.

HuffPostLive spoke with McCracken about how this form of TV watching has impacted our lives, and why users might choose to watch some of their favorite shows this way. "They're totally captive of the drama in question. They're right there emotionally. They're caught up. They're empathizing. They're participating. They're identifying. It's all the things we do with shows we like."

Watch the full clip above to hear McCracken talk about his findings.
