According to data released by Netflix this morning, Good Friday was New Zealand's most popular day for streaming.

A 2017 review by the streaming company has pulled trends from a survey and viewing data in an aim to illustrate not just what Kiwis have been watching, but how they've been watching it.

In a shocking revelation, someone in the country watched the Adam Sandler comedy flick 'Grown Ups' 331 times this year -  that's nearly once every day!

It also reveals New Zealand's most watched shows, which include the new 'Stranger Things' series, the hugely controversial '13 Reasons Why' and hit comedy 'Orange Is the New Black'.

Our most binge-worthy shows - shows which we spent more than two hours a day watching - include those mentioned earlier, but our top three come as more of a surprise.

In at number one is Mexican political drama 'Ingobernable', followed by Oprah Winfrey's drama 'Greenleaf' and true-crime satire 'American Vandal'.

Our most binge-raced series (which Netflix defines as the shows we watch as quickly as possible) is 'Stranger Things 2 '.


Some other interesting stats include:

  • Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day!
  • Even Antarctica got in on the watching action, where someone binged through Shameless
  • Mexico takes the top spot for having the most members to watch Netflix every-single-day
  • The average member watched around 60 movies on Netflix in 2017
