Previous studies have shown that binge-watching produces emotional effects. The current study examined whether there was an association between the frequency of binge-watching and negative and positive emotions. A survey was administered to 66 participants recruited from a Southern private institution. A multiple regression and correlation analysis were run on the data. Results from the analysis were significant, confirming our hypothesis that people who binge-watched more experienced negative emotions such as loss of control and dependency, and people who binge-watched less experienced more positive emotions. The implications do not show that binge-watching effects psychosocial outcomes. Suggestions for future research are discussed.
