Which Country Binged on Netflix the Most This Year?
If you’ve ever felt guilty for watching too much Stranger Things at once, or felt judged when “Are you still watching?” popped onto your television screen, Netflix’s newly released — and somewhat shocking — global streaming stats for 2017 may relieve you of your shame.
One consumer of the streaming service in Mexico watched the animated movie Monsters, Inc. 364 times this year! A streamer in Colombia watched the 2001 kid-friendly hit Shrek 311 times while a Netflix user in Peru viewed the flick 226 times.
Mexico topped the chart for the most daily consumption of content on the service. Latin America had a particularly strong showing, with five of the top 10 countries that devoured the most media on Netflix. Peru came in at No. 3, Chile at No. 5, Brazil at No. 6 and Argentina at No. 7.
Other interesting — and peculiar — stats and facts: Jan. 1 is the biggest streaming day of the year globally; one member watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 365 days in a row; and 1 billion hours of Netflix were watched per week from over 109 million members spanning 190 countries.
