  • U.S. TV Networks Make Series Reforms on the Basis of Binge-Watching trend

U.S. TV networks are realizing that the latest trend among the fans is binge watching and they will be designing the series on that trend.

The trends of TV are changing and the TV networks are realizing that trend slowly. Of course the leaders of this revolutionary trend is Netflix and online streaming channels.

The demographic are changing for the 18-34 years old audience who have been preferring and voting for shows that are premiered collectively.

House of Cards, Jessica Jones and Daredevil were one of the biggest hits of last year. Mozart in the Jungle and Mr. Robot’s success at the Golden Globes have also led the networks to consider collective series premieres, according to Reuters

At first the networks were not highly in the favor of developing long series with a slow moving plot. They began to prefer shows like The Big Bang Theory and NCIS which had single episode plots that were completed in the one episode but that format still isn’t enough for the audience. 

With the use of online streaming and DVRs, they don’t have to wait every week for a new episode. They can just watch the whole show collectively. These are the two fans according to experts.

They are the fans that watch the shows with full dedication and enthusiasm and they are the ones who would discuss the series next day. They are the fans who know everything about the shows. 

They are using online streaming, they are using DVR to fast forward on commercials. They want fast entertainment. They want speed and the networks are finally catching up what Netflix has already achieved.

They are now concentrating on producing collective shows with limited episodes that can be premiered together. The show’s plots are going to be developed that will have a cliff hanger in each episode to generate audience’s interests. The term TV prime-time is going out of trend.
