Did you binge the most binge-watched Netflix shows of 2017?


Did you binge the most binge-watched Netflix shows of 2017?

In 2017, Netflix users around the globe consumed more than 140 million hours of Netflix per day, the streaming service announced in a news release Monday.

The company identified the year’s notable global trends about what users watched and how they watched them.

They found that the biggest streaming day of the year was Jan. 1, 2017, Mexico had the most Netflix members tuning in per day and one Netflix user even watched “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” 365 days in a row.

Netflix also split consumer habits (TV shows only) into four categories:

  1. “The shows we devoured” (most watched for more than two hours per day)
  2. “The shows we savored” (most watched for less than two hours per day)
  3. “The shows that got us cheating” (most shamelessly watched ahead of their significant others)
  4. “The shows that brought us together” (most watched together as a family)

The service uncovered the numbers by analyzing average daily viewing hours per member between Nov. 1, 2016 and Nov. 1, 2017.

The data included new Netflix original shows launched between the two dates only.

Results for the third and fourth categories are based on more than 60,000 survey responses from Netflix members between Oct. 24-30, 2017. According to Netflix, the sample is representative of adults watching TV shows as a couple in 32 countries — and of adults watching TV shows with their families in 32 countries.

When it came to the most-devoured Netflix show of 2017, the true crime series “American Vandal” came out on top, followed by the Brazilian thriller series, “3%.”

Atlanta-filmed “Stranger Things” earned top honors for bringing families together (and ranked third for shows that got people cheating).

Here are the top 10 Netflix shows for each category:
