If you seem to be watching more TV show episodes and fewer movies on Netflix, you’re not alone. A new report from Nielsen has revealed that Netflix users are spending more of their time watching TV shows than they used to, and this shift is coming at the expense of films.
Nielsen is reporting that 19 percent of survey respondents reported a preference for TV programming on Netflix, which is an increase of eight percent in just one year. Respondents who say they primarily stream movies declined six percent to 47%.
Nielsen said the following in a blog post:
“The increase comes in the wake of Netflix not just inking partnerships to re-air programming, but also jumping feet first into production themselves, rolling out original content, like the eight-episode ‘Lilyhammer,’”
With Netflix’s streaming movie catalog leaving something to be desired while its TV content offering is fairly robust, is this news surprising at all? How do your Netflix viewing habits compare to those of the Nielsen survey respondents?
