Connections: Is appointment viewing on television making a comeback?

Sep 9, 2019

Netflix recently announced it will drop episodes of a new series weekly, instead of all at once. Hulu has already adopted the practice, and Disney and other competitors plan to do so. What does that mean for television binge culture?

We talk about viewing habits and the must-see shows on streaming services and TV. Our guests:

  • Todd Sodano, associate professor of media and communication at St. John Fisher College
  • Bob Thompson, director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University
