Over the past 20 years, Netflix triggered a cultural shift in the way we consume media and entertainment. The company’s CEO and co-founder, Reed Hastings, gave us the gift of accessibility to thousands of movies – via mail-based DVD delivery or streaming – at the click of a button. The ease of access to our favorite movies and shows even gave way to a new term and way of life, ‘binge watching’, the practice of watching multiple episodes in rapid succession. This new age media addiction has racked up some impressive statistics associated with Netflix’s growing subscriber base, streaming data usage, and viewing habits.
To highlight some of these data points we put together this infographic to visually represent some of the most impressive Netflix streaming statistics.
