The average American spends 100 minutes a day on #Netflix vs. 20 minutes on #reading


We’re big fans of Netflix over here at – and according to some recent data, we’re not the only ones. In fact, our calculations show that subscribers spend much more time binge-watching Netflix than they do hanging out with their friends! According to our calculations, the average Netflix subscriber watches 1 hour and 40 minutes of Netflix each day (you can check out the math in our piece on Netflix’s commercials – essentially, we just took the total number of Netflix streaming hours per day as reported by CEO Reed Hastings and divided it by the number of Netflix subscribers worldwide). On its own, that statistic isn’t so bad – especially when you think of all of the time those Netflix users are saving by skipping commercials. But maybe we should all get out a bit more often, because when we compare the results of our calculations with data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we see that we are spending a lot more time with Netflix than with our own friends.
