Every day, Netflix subscribers spend an estimated 165 million hours watching endless amounts of content, making us entirely guilty of binge-watching on media streaming devices.
To explore this concept, OnBuy wanted to discover just how obsessed we really are with our favourite TV shows. After analysing Insiders 20 most-binged TV series, we have calculated how many hours you'd need to set aside to watch the most binge-worthy Netflix shows from 2019!
With 64 million member viewings in its first four weeks, Netflix revealed that Stranger Things Season 3 debuted as the most watched season to date!
OnBuy discovered that these viewers spent 7 hours and 24 minutes watching all eight episodes of the third season, and with the majority likely to have watched all previous seasons (3 seasons, 25 episodes), they would have spent a total of 21 hours and 49 minutes binging.
In the time it would take to watch the entire show from start to finish, viewers could have lived the same journey as the kids by going on a dungeon crawl and completing seven rounds of the three-hour Dungeon & Dragons games.
