Haven't seen a report of such recently... although I haven't been paying much attention as I stopped streaming a while ago (too many movies/TV series via my NAS to catch up on). Various highlights...


Netflix now has 26.5 million worldwide subscribers to its streaming service, more than the 22.3 million TV subscribers at the leading cable provider, Comcast Corp.


The 1 billion hours of online viewing in June works out to a monthly average of about 38 hours per streaming subscriber. That's up from an estimated monthly average of 28 hours in December, based on the 2 billion hours of combined streaming activity that occurred during the final three months of last year.


Mahaney's report said that more than one-third of Netflix's streaming subscribers watch about as many TV series as they do movies over the Internet.


As of March 31, Netflix had just 2.7 million customers who subscribed only to the DVD rental plan. About 19.1 million are streaming-only customers and the remaining 7.4 million get both.

Fastforwarding to 2020.

"Netflix's Big Viewership Numbers Mean Very Little"

“Now, it will count anyone who ‘chose to watch and did watch at least 2 minutes’ of a title as a viewer. ... Per Netflix, it is ‘long enough to indicate the choice was intentional’ but more accurately shows popularity than the 70 percent threshold, which may have negatively impacted longer projects.”

"'The Witcher' Breaks Netflix Series Viewership Records — With One Big Catch"

The new metric is now more akin to views on a YouTube video, which indicate in most cases only a small portion of a given piece of content's running time, and are even farther away from the average audience measure for traditional TV.

I only use other people's Netflix but I did watch the movie HUSH so at least an hour of that data was me.

(My neighbor lives alone and I don't think there is a Netflix plan for a single screen... she pays for multiple screens so that's why I have her Netflix on my ATV4K.) (I don't actually like Netflix so I pretty much ignore it anyway.)
