Are You a Netflix Cheater? Nearly Half of All Streamers Are

We may have finally gotten to the bottom of why Netflix is so secretive with their viewership numbers … everyone is cheating on everyone else! In a new study released by the streaming giant just in time for Valentine’s Day, 46 percent of couples admit to Netflix cheating — watching a series ahead of your significant other.

Netflix found that Mexico and Brazil have the most philanderers, while only 27 percent of Netherlanders have cheated. The top shows that have tempted lovers to stray include The Walking Dead, House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, Stranger Things, and Breaking Bad — but let’s be honest, if you haven’t watched all of Breaking Bad yet, that’s on you.

Netflix used SurveyMonkey to poll over 30,000 subscribers to find that 45 percent don’t confess to cheating, 81 percent cheat more than one time, and 61 percent would cheat more if they could get away with it. Some of this online infidelity has even led to real-life drama — 18 percent have gotten into a verbal argument because of their cheating.
