Episode one of Three’s new YouTube series, Binge Club, is due to air on the evening of October 31st. The topic will be Stranger Things 2 and is expected to be spoiler-packed, so you’ll have to make sure you’ve seen the entire season before tuning into Binge Club - that gives you about four days to watch all nine episodes if you want to tune into Binge Club live.
In its statement, Three says:
“Each show will be hosted by a different fan-favourite social influence. Like the modern-day equivalent of the classic book club, Three’s Binge Club will bring together enthusiastic bingers across the UK to enable a no-holds barred conversation about hit programmes of the moment […] The first Binge Club will centre on the Netflix original Stranger Things 2 and be hosted by YouTube sensation Wall of Comedy, who will lead a lively discussion on the latest plot developments and craziest fan theories around the latest season.”
The main inspiration for launching the new Binge Club were statistics which revealed that two-thirds of Brits admit to having watched an entire TV series in one sitting, and another one-in-five saying that bingeing is the only way to watch shows now.
The new Binge Club will undoubtedly be used to promote Three’s several-month-old Go Binge service which allows customers to stream from selected services, including Netflix, without it impacting their data allowance.
