[en] The widespread practice of binge-watching (i.e. watching multiple episodes of a TV series in
one session) recently generated concerns about associated negative outcomes. Its
psychological investigation, however, remains fragmentary. Based on the previous
phenomenological investigation of TV series watching, we developed and validated two
original assessment instruments, assessing TV series watching motives and binge-watching
engagement and symptoms, respectively. Preliminary items were created for each
questionnaire, and a focus group with TV series viewers was conducted and analyzed to
generate the final instruments. The questionnaires were then administered via an online
survey (N=6556), together with complementary measures of affect, problematic Internet use
and substance use. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, along with correlational
analyses, were performed to examine both structural and external validity of the scales. The
factorial analyses resulted in a 4-factor model (i.e. emotional enhancement, enrichment,
coping-escapism and social) for the Watching TV Series Motives Questionnaire (WTSMQ),
and in a 7-factor model (i.e. engagement, positive emotions, desire-savoring, pleasure
preservation, binge-watching, dependency and loss of control) for the Binge-Watching
Engagement and Symptoms Questionnaire (BWESQ). The results suggest good psychometric
properties for both scales. The current study thus provides theoretically-driven and
psychometrically sound instruments for further research on binge-watching behaviors
