Abstract:With the establishment of VOD streaming services, more and more people tend to prefer using VOD streaming services while delaying intended activities. This phenomenon can also be referred to as procrastination behaviour. However, the relationship between VOD streaming services and procrastination behaviour remains unknown. The aim of this study was to see if there exists a relationship between the streaming behaviour on VOD streaming services and general procrastination behaviour in the general public. This study was conducted as an online correlational survey study. In total, 209 participants were recruited to fill in an online questionnaire which assessed their streaming behaviour and general procrastination behaviour. To examine general procrastination behaviour the Pure Procrastination Scale (PPS) was used. Based on the results, it can be concluded that, though relationships were weak, people who spend more time and/or watch more episodes in a row on VOD streaming services, tend to participate more in general procrastination behaviour. However, caution has to be taken with the generalizability of the results, as the study sample mainly consisted of students.
