Do you binge on your favorite TV shows? Meaning you’ll marathon-watch a show to catch up, or just because you’re hooked?
Binge-viewing is gaining popularity and Xfinity’s Watchathon Week is perfect for marathon watchers.
Next week starting Monday, March 25 through the 31, Xfinity will be opening up every past episode from every season of over 100 TV series.
If you’re an Xfinity TV customer with On Demand you’re going to get this all-inclusive access to hit shows like Downton Abbey, Sex and the City, Mad Men, and The Walking Dead.
Because it is humanly impossible to watch the 3,500+ episodes that will be unleashed to you, we came up with an identifier list to help you with your game plan for Watchathon Week – what are you and what will you be watching?
The Adrenaline Junkie
These viewers do not watch TV to relax. They like high speed, adrenaline pumping, mile-a-minute action and adventure. They will use Watchathon to stay up all night watching one cliffhanger after another. Recommended viewing includes: The Walking Dead, Dexter, Homeland, Banshee, Strike Back, True Blood, The Americans, Grimm and Touch.
The Couch Critic
These TV connoisseurs don’t just watch TV, they watch film (just made for any screen). This kind of viewer holds regular viewing parties and intellectual discourse on the plot, direction and acting with their friends. Recommended Watchathon viewing includes: Downton Abbey, Mad Men, The Newsroom, Portlandia, Magic City and Archer.
The Family Man
These viewers have family values. Maybe just not ‘traditional’ family values. They identify with some, are amused by others, and grateful for their own dysfunction in light of what they see on TV. Watchathon viewers will love: Duck Dynasty, Parenthood, Swamp People, Raising Hope, Braxton Family Values, Shameless and Dance Moms.
The Quirky Comedian/Comedienne
These watchers get their laughs from oddballs and socially awkward TV moments. They will veg out with their best friends to watch episode after episode, giggling all the way. Recommended Watchathon viewing includes Girls, The Mindy Project, Go On, Veep, House of Lies, Legit, Tosh.0, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty and Psych.
The Secret Admirer
Shhh! Don’t tell anyone. But these secret admirers adore the shows that other people love to hate. They will watch primetime soaps and reality TV shamelessly, but you’ll never know it. These Watchathon viewers will love The Bachelor, Smash, Bridezillas, Californication, Chicago Fire, Deception and Top Gear.
The Time Traveler
Still jealous of Marty McFly from Back to the Future, these viewers want to head back – or forward – in time to experience history, fantasy or just plain escape their everyday lives. Some recommended Watchathon viewing must include Game of Thrones, Revolution, Spartacus, Dr. Who, Battlestar Galactics and Vikings.
