2017 was a fantastic year for Netflix. There were so many new movies, shows, and Netflix Originals that debuted. Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day! That’s crazy!

New Year’s Day was the most popular streaming day for Canadian Netflix members. A fascinating fact… there was one Canadian Netflix user who streamed The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 361 times in 2017. Did they leave their home? That movie is 3 hours and 21 minutes long!

Our family really enjoyed watching Riverdale and Stranger Things. The girls and I planned our Thursday evenings around watching Coverdale together. But, there were times when I was out at an event, or Rachel had to babysit, where the three of us would chat about watching it ahead of time, or waiting until we could watch it together. Most of the time, we waited, as we really enjoyed watching it together. However, there was the odd time when one of us would watch the episode ahead of time.

Well apparently, we aren’t the only ones that had “cheating” issues. Take alike at how Canadians consumed Netflix in 2017.

  1. We are looking forward to a new season of Stranger Things and have enjoyed Riverdale too! We are working on 13.Reasons Why right now and loving it, even if it’s about a tough subject.

  2. Excellent post on Netflix! This post provides valuable facts to users of Netflix. Keep it up!

  3. I had high hopes for YouTube to watch Anime. I found it to be difficult to find what I was looking for. Maybe it’s just me, I found it’s overall site structure to be utterly lacking. There are some good titles to be found, one just has to be patient in looking for them.
