Netflix Knows You're Cheating On Your Partner

Posted February 14, 2017

If you don't want your partner to cheat, you just might have to sacrifice some ZZZs: 25% of cheating happens when one partner falls asleep, Netflix says.

According to a study released by Netflix on Monday, 46 percent of streaming couples have "cheated". Are you among the 14% that think Netflix cheating is worse than an actual affair?

Have you ever snuck in an episode of you and your partner's favorite show while they were away? They're more likely than other countries to say they cheat because they know they won't get caught.

Nearly half (45 percent) never confess to Netflix cheating, but almost the same amount (46 percent) said binge-watching ahead isn't a big deal. To make matters worse, 81 percent of cheaters are repeat offenders, and 44 percent have committed the act at least three or more times. "The most loyal viewers are in Netherlands (73% have not cheated), Germany (65%) and Poland (60%)". The top shows worth betraying your partner's trust: The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Narcos and Stranger Things.
