More and more Canadians are cutting the cable cord. That doesn’t mean they are watching less. In fact time in front of the screen has maintained if not increased. It’s just that people are watching what they want when they want. Netflix viewing in Canada is among the highest in the world. Canadians average about 520 hours a year streaming Netflix.
Finally, Canadians also watch more kids and drama series on average during the week than global users do, particularly on Thursdays and Fridays. On Thursdays, about 11 percent of users are watching drama series, while 10 percent are engaging in kids shows, compared to about nine and eight percent globally in those respective categories.
The United States is ranked fourth globally for most members to watch Netflix every single day, behind Mexico, Canada, and Peru.
Members watched an average of 60 movies on Netflix this year. That’s at least one movie per week.
Cumulatively, Netflix subscribers across the world watched 140 million hours of programming a day, which amounts to at about 1 billion hours per week.
