Binge watching is just like reading a novel – Netflix CEO

I was over Mobile World Congress last week where Netflix CEO Reed Hastings was interviewed by the BBC’s Francine Stock.

He compared binge watching like staying up all night reading a novel, and that the linear format of television robbed us of the ability to enjoy content when we want. He expects all television will be available in bingeable form over the next few years.

So next time you see the Are you still watching? prompt on Netflix, select Yes with pride, no prejudice.
