If you quit watching TV tomorrow, you’d have time for a SECOND JOB. At least one that’s part-time: A survey found the average American streams 1,112 hours of shows and movies a year. That’s over 21 hours a week.
5,000 Americans were polled, 100 in every state. Here are a few more quick stats on America’s streaming habits . . .
1. The state that streams the most is Wyoming, where 40% of people stream more than 50 hours of content a week. That’s enough for a FULL-TIME job. But what else is there to do in Wyoming? Can you really blame them?
2. Minnesota is the top state for true crime shows . . . Indiana watches the most dramas . . . Nevada loves romantic comedies . . . and people in Idaho are the most likely to stream the same movie over and over again.
3. “Netflix and chill”? 57% think streaming while hooking up is an acceptable FIRST DATE now. But once you’re through the hook-up stage, you better be into the same stuff. Having a different taste in movies is a deal-breaker for 45% of us.
4. Holiday movies are big this time of year, but not ONLY this time of year. Two-thirds occasionally watch them other times. 74% of women and 60% of men. The state where people are most likely to watch Christmas movies out-of-season is Alaska. 93% of Alaskans said they do it.
