Once known just for movies, Netflix changed the game in 2013 with the creation of Netflix Original Series such as Orange is the New Black and House of Cards and with 18 recent Emmy nominations the streaming service is redefining content for its 100 million subscribers. The Verge reported that Netflix is rapidly taking over the Emmys while Engadget shared company plans to release 1,000 hours of original content this year, up from 600 hours in 2016 and 450 in 2015.
What does this mean? More content to binge!
Netflix has not only changed the way we get content but being able to stream means we can watch what we want and when we want. There is no shortage of original content and there are plenty of favorite shows and movies for adults and kids of all ages.
In our house Thomas is a YouTube fanatic but Emily loves Netflix. She’s seen every single Grey’s Anatomy episode when I’ve never even seen a single one. Another favorite of hers is the CW’s Riverdale and having finished the first season, she’s eager for the second season to be available on Netflix.
My husband and I binged the new season of Orange is the New Black while the kids are away at camp and just started House of Cards. We are hooked! We are addicted to Kevin Spacey as Francis Underwood, a southerner from South Carolina whose southern drawl tends to hide his scheming ways as he serves as the puppet master in the political world. This week while traveling to San Francisco for meetings with YouTube Parent Panel, I downloaded 5 episodes to binge on the plane!
Why Bingeing is Out and Sneaking is In
I might not have to sneak watching my favorite shows offline when I travel solo but Netflix has found that sneaking is the new binging. With so much streaming content, it’s hard to delay gratification when it comes to watching favorite shows. According to these new statistics, sneaking in time to stream favorite shows counts as me-time for moms. 9 out of 10 moms feel that watching TV and movies alone helps reduce stress and provides much needed peace and quiet that is necessary for us to be better parents.
We’re master multitaskers in our daily lives as we balance raising kids, having successful careers, and maintaining our households so it’s no surprise that 71% of moms are sneaking their favorite shows on Netflix while parenting. Here’s a look at the top ways and places mom sneak peeks at shows and hide in order to get through another captivating episode.
