A Year in Review on Netflix 2017 – Are you part of the Stats?

2017 ON NETFLIX – A YEAR IN BINGEING

A look back at the shows Canadians watched (and watched again) that defined our year

What a difference a year makes. We learned how to launder money (Ozark) and profile serial killers (MINDHUNTER). That life is better with wrestling (GLOW) and just as crazy without Pablo (Narcos). And once again, that Eleven is not to be messed with (Stranger Things). The only thing we didn’t learn… who drew the dicks (American Vandal).

2017 brought a lot of learning and also, A LOT of watching. Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day.

Canadians started the year off bingeing with Sunday, January 1 being the most popular streaming day1. This trend continued throughout 2017 as Canada ranked second globally for having the most members to binge Netflix every single day. Amongst these dedicated Netflix users was one Canadian that watched The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 361 times in 2017! (this is once a day – does this person not work?- BML note)

There’s much to say about what we watched, but how we watched was also intriguing. Though bingeing was standard in 2017, not all series were enjoyed in the same way by Canadians…

The Shows We Devoured in 20172

We took an escape from reality in 2017 by devouring (watching more than two hours per day) drama series likes of Greenleaf, Suburra: Blood on Rome and Ingobernable. The question of ‘whodunit’ (and didn’t do it) in The Keepers and The Confession Tapes also had us watching with might.
