The buzz word ‘media therapy’ is now coming into its own with people choosing to drown their frustrations and unwind after a long day with binge watching a good series or streaming motivational, comedy, cooking, DIY, news, campaigns and a range of other videos. Typically, media therapy entails an uninterrupted block of hours dedicated to spending quality time between you and the content you are interested to watch.
We have most recently seen the rise of Video on Demand services, online streaming and other video-focused social media channels such as YouTube, which made accessibility to our favorite video content as easy a tap of a finger. We are no longer restricted in front of one TV at a time and on one channel, thanks to the video streaming capabilities of our smartphone devices, that are accessible to each of us.
For most media consumers, smartphones have replaced televisions and desktops as the primary device for watching content. Having said that, not every smartphone is suited to fit this need in the current generation of smartphones.
Binge watching is the new fad
In the past, binge watching was limited to Star Trek and Star Wars marathons and Friends reruns whereas in today’s day and age the phenomenal increase in content available to watch online translates into effective media therapy prescriptions available at your fingertips on the go. ‘Binge-watching’ has recently taken the world by storm, as the practice of watching multiple episodes of a series or television program in rapid succession.
