Sony's Michael Lynton Defines 'Tantric' TV Viewing
What's the opposite of Netflix-style binge viewing? The Sony CEO has a new name for old-style TV watching.
This story first appeared in the July 19 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
At a Bel-Air charitable dinner for the L.A. Dance Project, actor Will McCormack confided to tablemates Rashida Jones and Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton on June 20 that he'd recently binged through a Friday Night Lights season in four days.
Lynton began a debate on the merits of binge viewing. Its opposite? What he termed "tantric" viewing -- i.e., a more controlled style of consumption that would, ahem, extend the pleasure over time.
