Global Netflix analysis shows Aussies are slower to catch on

Brodie Fogg 24 September 2015 NEWS

Global netflix stats...or maybe just more critical of what they devote their time to.

Netflix has analysed its global streaming data for its most popular shows premiere seasons in order to pinpoint the moment viewers became hooked. The analysis found that 70% of viewers who watched as far as the “hooked episode” went on to watch the entire series.

This data was used to promote the streaming platform over traditional, scheduled viewing but it actually tells us something interesting about Aussie viewing habits. As you can see from the data below, we Australians aren’t as quick to jump on the bandwagon as other nations are.

TV series Worldwide hooked episode Australian hooked episode
Arrow 8 10
Bloodline 4 5
Daredevil 5 6
Grace and Frankie 4 4
House of Cards 3 5
How I Met Your Mother 8 11
Orange is the New Black 3 4
Pretty Little Liars 4 7
Suits 2 3
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 4 5

So what do we think Australia? Are we just a little bit slower than the rest of the world like The Simpsons once implied or are we simply more critical of the shows we commit ourselves to? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
