Abstract:The current study is focused on examining the association of the group using VoD streaming services and two psychological factors of stress and the Fear of Missing Out (FoMO). The overall aim is to better understand to what extend the trait and state levels of FoMO and the stress are associated with the group’s watching behavior over time. In this experience sampling study, a phone application was used to measure 75 participants’ watching behaviors over a span of 15 days. Over the study period, participants received every morning and evening a questionnaire asking them about their watching behavior the previous day as well as their current psychological well-being. The data was afterward analyzed using Linear Mixed Models (LMMs). The analysis of the 75 participants showed that on average the participants spent 1.5 hours with an average of 2.4 episodes watching VoD streaming services, mostly Netflix, each day. The LLMs analyses showed that there is no significant association between VoD watching and the psychological factors of FoMO and stress. Further research on this topic should be conducted by looking into more depth of what factors play a role as motivating factor for VoD watching behavior.
