Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) is known for having some of the best content among online streaming services, with a revolving door new seasons and shows that grab our attention. Binge watching is a byproduct of this and is now a lot more common than in the past because whole seasons are available on Netflix instantly. Netflix took a look at itself and its subscribers and profiled what everyone is watching.

In 2017 so far, Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day, totaling just a little more than 1 billion hours per week.
