Series, Movie, Series, Repeat #StreamTeam #NowOnNetflixCA

What is this “Series, Movie, Series, Repeat” all about?  It’s the new Netflix binge routine!  You know what I’m talking about, right?

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

We’ve all been there:  committed and in deep connection, with a series, until it ends and then what?  We take a momentary break and jump right in again.  Yes, it at least sounds a lot like me.

Basically, this shows that after finishing a series, a majority of Netflix members (59%) take a pause, usually lasting three days, before committing to a new show. During that break, more than half (61%) watch a movie to keep the binge feeling alive.*

Netflix has created opportunity for a new trend … binge watching!   As a matter of fact, stats* suggest that after watching Orange Is the New Black many viewers check out The Fundamentals of Caring and Horrible Bosses 2.  After binging on the new Gilmore Girls people filled the void with Mean Girls and Clueless.

Movies, in my opinion, are a fun way to come together and connect as family, as friends, as anything really.  What’s important is the connection that we feel while watching.  Some things just make sense and the time spent together is priceless.

According to the research, here are some popular series-movie pairings:bingepairings

No matter which movie, or series you decide to watch over the holidays (or at any time really), keep in mind that family time is priceless.  Take the time to discuss your views, your thoughts, and your feelings.  You’ll be pleased with what you can discover!  Your teenager might have a great plan for his/her future and you might not have discovered that had you not been watching a movie together.

Let me know what you think.

Netflix analyzed the viewing data of over 86 million members across more than 190 countries between January 2016 and October 2016. The research examined variation in member’s viewing patterns in relation to TV series and movies. In this research, Netflix found when members switched from one series (completing all seasons available) to another, 59% of the time they took at least a one-day breather with a median gap of 2.5 days. During this breather, 61% of those members watched a standalone title (documentary, movie or stand-up special) before beginning the next series. In total, 36% of all Netflix members demonstrate this behavior. Members did not have to complete a series in a certain amount of time in order to be included in the research. To determine example series and movie pairs, Netflix analyzed more than 100 TV series to identify which movies were paired most frequently per market. The movie pairings do not equate to viewership numbers.
