With TV series available on a variety of platforms, many viewers now enjoy watching back-to-back episodes in one sitting. Washington Post entertainment writer Marc Silver, however, is betting he’s not alone in lacking time for hours-long binge-watching.

Where do you stand on the binge-watching debate?

In the recent article, the NCTA cites cable’s creative freedom to explore themes that network TV might not. As the NCTA stated, “audiences have made it clear what they’re after: narratives that push social boundaries and defy conventional norms, and actors who can pull it off.”
