Television viewing often is a sequence of a multitude of activities that can vary tremendously from the moment the TV set is turned on until it is turned off again.
Previous models of individual viewing behavior as well as empirical studies have focused
on isolated aspects of viewing only, such as the frequency and duration of viewing or
patterns of selecting a specific program. This paper draws attention to the complete process of TV viewing. We develop a process model to describe whole viewing sessions.
Furthermore, a review of the empirical evidence on viewing behavior and a typology
of factors influencing the viewing process are presented, concluded by a research program.
