Netflix usually closely guards their viewership numbers but they did reveal last week that 8.4 million users have watched an entire TV show season within 24 hours of its release. Netflix unveils entire seasons of original shows at once and has taken steps in recent years to make binge watching easier for users.
Netflix’s vice president for original series, Brian Wright, explained that from his perspective there’s a unique satisfaction that comes from being the first to finish a story.
Of the top binge raced Netflix original television shows globally, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Fuller House and Marvel’s The Defenders took the top three spots. Canada, the U.S. and Denmark were the three countries where people binge raced the fastest. The shows binge-watched depends slightly according to each country.
