Netflix Adds More Than Five Days To Your Life Every Year

August 24, 2015 in Daily Bulletin

Netflix is a time sink…or is it? Rob Toledo looked at the amount of time Netflix actually saves you:

  • The average show on TV has 15 and a half minutes of ads. The average Netflix subscriber watches 1.5 hours of TV a day.
  • This means that Netflix saved users 130 hours of advertising every year.
  • And the savings are only going to increase. Networks are increasing the speed of shows to create more time for adverts.
  • This translates to 5.4 days of saved time every year.
  • A Netflix viewer could use this time to watch 65 additional movies or binge on eight seasons (177 episodes) of a TV show.
