Viewers watch nearly 2 hours of Netflix each day.

New research shows Americans watch around 42.5 billion hours of Netflix a year, each watching nearly two hours a day, and the platform has nearly 100 million subscribers.

Nearly one-fifth of Netflix viewers watch a heavy amount of commercial TV on a regular basis, and subscriptions have increased thanks to exclusive shows: House of Cards, The OA, Sens8, Orange is the new black and other well produced dramas.

Research has shown that among non-Netflix subscribers, more than one quarter are heavy watchers of commercial television, while a fifth watch 2-3 hours per day.

Millions of Americans spend billions of dollars each year buying and legally downloading films and television shows, along with other members of the family sharing these downloads and subscriptions.
