Netflix Knows Exactly How Much We All Watched This Year … and It’s a Lot

Newsflash: We all watched a whole hell of a lot of Netflix in 2017. The streamer has released a detailed breakdown of this year’s viewing statistics, which reveals the aforementioned obviousness and a whole lot more.

Netflix users around the globe watched more than 140 million hours per day (over one billion hours per week) this year, with Sunday, Jan. 1 taking top honors as 2017’s most popular day for binge-watching. Mexico was the nation with the most viewers to stream something on Netflix every single day, followed by Canada, Peru and … sigh … the U.S.

The average Netflix user watched 60 movies on the service this year, while one decidedly not average user watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl on each of 2017’s 365 days. Whoever you are, your Netflix account should be taken away from you indefinitely, because you’re using it wrong. We hope it was worth it, you monster.

Netflix’s data dump also includes a couple of global top 10 lists: “Shows We Devoured” were the top series watched for more than two hours per day and “Shows We Savored” were the top series watched for less than two hours per day, while “Shows That Got Us Cheating” were the top series watched behind our significant others’ backs and “Shows That Brought Us Together” were the top series for family viewing.
