If there’s one thing humans are fond of – it’s pets. Despite the fact that they can’t really talk, they can be a man/woman’s best friend. Also, we have this bond with them – a relation where we understand each other really well. That’s why we do most of the thing with them and boy it sure is fun. I’m sure most of us have heard the term – “Netflix and Chill”. But there’s a new one in town – it’s Netflix and Woof.
Bet you must be like – What in the world is that? Let me tell you more about it.
Netflix and Woof
Well, it’s basically Netflix and Chill – where you relax and watch a bunch of series with your loved one. Instead, in this case, you do it with your pets. Quick Question, How often do you find yourself on your bed or couch, wrapped in the blanket like a burrito with your pet beside you? Yep.
Now, as exciting as watching series or a movie with your friend or significant other is – it can be really annoying. Especially when they spoil it for you or watch before you and sorts. Our pets on the other hand can be the best partner to have beside us – they don’t spoil it, judge your taste and watch the entire thing with you.
Here’s what Netflix did. They conducted a survey on SurveyMoney from January 9 till 25, 2018. They conducted this particular Survey in 27 Countries, to be specific. They are 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 and UK. Netflix received more than 50,000 responses and this is where things get interesting.
Starting off, 74% members have watched Netflix with their pet. What gets more interesting is that, 30% members have a profile for watching with their pet (say whaaa?). Every one in three person watch with their pet every single time when they power up that TV.
The country that ranks first in Binge watching with their pets – is India! Followed by Thailand in the second place and USA in the third. This is definitely a mind blowing fact. I guess, Indians love their pets being their Netflix Buddy I suppose.
Netflix asked why they binge with their pets. 37% of the users are in for the love as they are the best cuddlers. 21% just love the fact that pets don’t hog the remote, fair enough. 18% of the people don’t really have to worry as pets don’t spoil a show. Finally, 16% of the users said that they are always down for one more episode, now that’s what I am talking about.
Despite all these, we still care for our pets and this particular stat is equally funny and interesting. We all have those days where our pet refuses to sit with us and watch a movie or a show. One in every five person bribes their pet with food to watch together. A huge 34% of the time, pet owners change seats – just to make their dog have all the comfort in the world. Our dog or cats may not talk but we sure do understand their body language. 12% of the owners just turn of the show just because their pets didn’t like it. Ain’t that cute?
Series to Watch with your Pets
Apparently, among Dog owners – dramas like Narcos and The Crown is a lot more popular. Whereas Cats prefer sci-fi shows like Black Mirror and Star Trek Discovery. Oh and bird lovers, love comedies like Grace and Frankie.
There is one show that brings all of them together – and that’s Stranger Things – cuz you know, #JusticeforMews.
