NETFLIX & WOOF: Bingeing is for the Dogs (and Cats)

New study reveals pets to be man’s best binge paw-tner

Love for our pets has reached epic heights – pampered pooches, cat cafes and even live-in-lions in the UAE – so it should come as no surprise that our four legged friends (and birds too) have infiltrated our entertainment habits as well. According to a new survey released today by Netflix, when it comes to watching TV, most people (58%) find pets to be the best binge partner.

Let’s face it, watching a show with someone else has its downsides. You risk being spoiledcheated on or worst of all, having to compromise on what to watch. Not only do pets not hog the remote or judge your entertainment tastes (well, maybe), they make the perfect partners for the company, the cuddles (one in three have turned to their furry friends for comfort during a sad or scary scene) and even the conversation (22% have talked to their pet about the show or movie they were watching).

Though you should be warned that pet bingeing can also be ruff. More than a third of respondents (37%) have moved where they were sitting so their pet would be more comfortable, 22% have bribed them with treats to watch longer, and some (12%) have even gone so far as turning off a show because their pet didn’t appear to like it. The snuggle is real.

So what are the shows everyone is barking, meowing and chirping about? Dog owners are more likely to choose dramas like Narcos and The Crown. Cat owners purr-fer sci-fi series like Black Mirror and Star Trek Discovery. Meanwhile, bird lovers are egged on by comedies like Orange is the New Black. The one show that brings all streaming species together… Stranger Things (#justiceformews).

Methodology

The survey was conducted by SurveyMonkey from January 9-25, 2018 and based on more than 50,000 responses. The sample is representative of an adult online population who watch Netflix with their pets in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, USA, UK.
