Netflix Cheating: 45% of Aussies secretly watch episodes without their partner

On Valentine’s Day, Netflix has released statistics on “Netflix Cheating” — where one partner watches episodes of a series behind their significant other’s back.

In Australia, 45% of Aussies say they’re guilty of the deed, with American Horror Story, Archer and Fuller House leading the list of shows we can’t wait to watch.

A whopping 68% of SurveyMonkey respondents say they’d Netflix Cheat more if they knew they could get away with it.

Brazil and Mexico are the countries with the highest percentages of cheaters — 57% and 58%, respectively. Couples in the Netherlands are the most faithful, with only 17% admitting they Netflix Cheat. That, or the country collectively lied. You decide.

Are you guilty of the deed? Maybe now’s the time to confess to your partner — with chocolates and flowers in hand, we’d suggest.
