People Watched 1 Billion Hours of Netflix Last Month


What did you do last month? The numbers suggest you probably watched a lot of Netflix. Netflix surpassed 1 billion hours of viewing in June. The average Netflixer watched 80 minutes a day of old episodes of Cheers, pop culture documentaries, and other desirables. These numbers would put them as TV’s 7th most watched network and 2nd most watched cable network (right behind ESPN and ahead of Disney). As these numbers continue to increase, Netflix will continue to assert itself as a serious competitor to the networks, especially in terms of buying new series. And this is before they start having new episodes of Arrested Development and we all watch a billion hours a month each.
