Facts About Netflix You Can Binge Read Right Now

January 5, 2018

Are you like the millions of other Americans who enjoy watching an entire TV series in one sitting via Netflix? How about a little reading break?

Most Watched Movie

A couple of years ago, movie star Adam Sandler signed a huge contract that made Netflix his exclusive home — meaning his popular movies would hit the service first and skip theaters entirely. The first was released in 2016, a comic western called The Ridiculous Six. Within just a month of its release, it became the most-watched movie on Netflix…of all time. It wasn’t just in the U.S., either — the company says The Ridiculous Six was its most popular movie everywhere in the world where it operates.

Netflix knows what you’re watching…

Netflix knows what you’re watching, and they’re worried about you. Netflix reported that a single person in England watched Jerry Seinfeld’s animated feature Bee Movie 357 times in 2017. Another person watched the Netflix-produced holiday film A Christmas Prince every day for 18 days. Yet another watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 365 days in a row.

By the Numbers

As far as quantity over quality goes, Netflix users just plain watch a lot of Netflix. In 2017, TV and film fans watched about 140 million total hours of content a day. But that’s just the average. The overall busiest day on Netflix: New Year’s Day. Not counting binge-watched TV series, the average Netflix viewer watches about 60 movies a year.

Most and Least Rapidly Binge-Watched

Netflix shows most rapidly binge-watched: American Vandal, 3%, and 13 Reasons Why. Netflix shows that people took days, weeks, or even months to finish: The Crown, Big Mouth, and Neo Yokio.

Cut the Cord

 Countless families have used Netflix to “cut the cord” and give up cable TV in favor of streaming services. Many of them, such as Netflix get their revenue from subscription fees instead of advertising, meaning there are no commercials. According to a study by an organization called Exstreamist, parents who opt for commercial-free services spare each child an annual average of 150 hours of commercials.
