This is a #TiVoMoms sponsored post.

In the past year, as a TiVo Mom, I’ve seen several studies from TiVo that were interesting. I’ve gathered several of the stats from the different studies to share with you. I love seeing how others watch TV and multitask and binge watching.

Binge Watching

TiVo researched binge watching habits.

  • 89% of TiVo customers have binged at least once in the past few months. I’m always binge watching some show. As soon as I finish 1, I start another series.
  • Dramas and crime dramas are the most binge watched genres
  • More than half of bingers, binge watch alone. The majority of the time I binge watch shows with my husband.

I’m curious about your binge watching habits. What shows have you binge watched? Did you watch them alone? When do you binge watch the most? Weekends? Weekdays?
