Abstract:Background: The relationship between streaming frequency and sleep quantity has been researched by a few studies. However, less research has been performed in the relation between streaming frequency and bedtime procrastination. Aim: The present study aimed to reveal the relationship between bedtime procrastination and streaming frequency in adults. Methods: A cross-sectional online survey was conducted. All 209 participants answered demographic questions, questions about their streaming frequency, and questions about bedtime procrastination. To answer the research question, a closer look was taken at the descriptive statistics and frequencies. Additionally, a Pearson correlation and a linear regression were performed. Results: The results of the study showed that bedtime procrastination is experienced in the study population to some extent. Besides, the streaming hours per day may be predicting bedtime procrastination (F (1, 208) = 6.063, p< .05) and the episodes watched in a row may be predicting bedtime procrastination (F (1, 208) = 6.020, p< .001). There was no relation found between bedtime procrastination and the streaming days per week (p=.25). Conclusion: From the conducted study, it can be concluded that two of three streaming frequency variables (hours per day, episodes watched in a row) are a predictor for bedtime procrastination.
