Best of 2017: Netflix Shares Defining Shows, Movies, and What Everyone Binged on This Year

posted on

Internet entertainment service Netflix reveals in an infographic the 2017 shows and movies we watched (and watched again) that defined the year.


In 2017, Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours of shows per day (that’s a little more that one billion hours per week, in case you were wondering). In the Philippines, the most popular streaming period fell on Friday, April 14, the second day of Holy Week long weekend (maybe everyone brought their favorite shows wherever they went that time, as the Philippines is among the top mobile downloaders in Asia). There were also those who opted to stay at home and enjoy their HD-ready Netflix shows with their connected TV and audio-video system.


Check out this recap of the most defining streaming moments on Netflix!
