Netflix’s new study on viewing habits of over 86 million members in 190 countries. For this study, the streaming service looked at what viewers do when they finish binge-watching a show—specifically, how long it takes before they dive into the next one and what they choose to watch in the meantime, Joinfo.com reports with reference to Time.
The study found that 59 percent of viewers take a pause of around three days before moving from one show to the next, and 61 percent of those interim bingers (36 percent of all Netflix members studied) watch a movie before they plunge into the next show.
The study also examined the kinds of movies members chose to watch after completing 100 different TV series, identifying several common pairings. After finishing all four seasons of House of Cards, viewers often watched Beasts of No Nation. Bingers of Gilmore Girls went on to watch Sixteen Candles and The Princess Bride. Bloodline was frequently followed up with a serving of Spotlight for dessert.
Many viewers segued from TV series to documentaries before committing to a new show. Narcos watchers followed up on their interest in drug trafficking with documentaries like Cartel Land and Narco Cultura. Fans of Marvel’s Luke Cage took in 13th, the documentary about race and the American criminal justice system. BoJack Horseman devotees tended to prefer stand-up comedy specials, but a good number of them hunkered down with a motivational speaking superstar in Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru.
It should be recalled that Netflix has recently added a download option in its mobile app, so now people can watch shows and movies offline.
